Topic: “Update on 2021 Maryland General Assembly Proceedings”

Speaker: Lesley Lopez
Maryland District 39 Delegate

We will have an update on this year’s General Assembly proceedings from friend of the branch, Delegate Lesley Lopez.  Lesley was elected to the House of Delegates in 2018 and has served through three sessions.   This year she is the 1st Vice President of the Women’s Caucus.  District 39 includes much of Germantown and Montgomery Village.   Leslie will provide insight into how the General Assembly managed during Covid-19 and what key legislation might be most important to Maryland’s women and children.

NOTE: All members will receive an email with the Zoom information about a week before the meeting and a reminder email a day before.  You can forward the email to any friends and family who may be interested in this meeting.  Ideally, please provide their email address to Heather so she can send the reminder.
