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.
