: As women throughout the country celebrate the 19
Amendment and the Women’s Suffrage movement, congrats to the City of Carmel who made history this week by electing a leadership team made up of two women – the first time that’s happened since Carmel became a city in 1976. Laura Campbell was elected president of the Council and Sue Finkam is vice president for the 2020 year. Carmel has a pretty good track record in that area. Out of five mayors in the last 43 years, two women have served as mayor, one woman (Gail Bardach) served as Carmel City Judge and seven as City Council representatives (Minnie Doan, Jane Reiman, Virginia Kerr, Sue McMullen, Annabelle Ogle, Luci Snyder and Carol Schleif). And a nod to a well circulated coffee mug motto: well-behaved women RARELY make history.
