We at Network 2000 are giving careful consideration to which candidate for governor is willing to make a sincere and honest commitment to the women of the state of Maryland. Recognizing that the next administration will have the opportunity and responsibility of appointing approximately 1,000 of Maryland's citizens to positions of authority, Network 2000 feels it is important for women in Maryland to have an equal opportunity and role as appointees. We, as an organization, raised our voice to challenge each of the candidates for governor to commit to having 50 percent of their gubernatorial appointments to commissions, committees, task forces, advisory boards and intrastate agencies be women.
