Governor, first lady hold second annual ‘Women’s Day at Capitol’ today

Gov. Butch Otter and First Lady Lori Otter are inviting people to their second annual "Women's Day at the Capitol" today, from 3-6 p.m. in the Capitol Auditorium. The governor called it "kind of an offshoot to Capitol for a Day, as we go around the state and visit other communities, we thought it would also be nice to have a day where we focus on the women in our Cabinet and in our administration, and be able to answer questions for ladies that would otherwise be curious of what we do here at the Capitol, what we do in state government and how much the women in our Cabinet add to the effectiveness of government.”

He added, “We had a great turnout last year, I don’t remember the exact number, but I think a lot of people were surprised that we had that many women in leadership positions in state government, and how very effective they were at answering questions and engaging in conversation with folks so that they would better understand what we do in government.”
