How many left?

There can’t be, at this point, very many elective governing boards that never have elected a woman to the group.

We now know of at least one – at least, that has applied until now. Last week, Helen Price Johnson was sworn in as a member of the Island County Commission, the first woman in its 155 years of existence. Owing to an election still unresolved, she may actually be joined by a second before long.

How many other such groups are there out there?

    Without doing any research to back my guess, I’d say that at least 75% of the county commissions in Idaho have never elected a woman. I’m gladly proved wrong.
