Delegate: Linda Johnson Wurtz

For their Vision 2020 State Initiative, Stromme and Wurtz are building women’s leadership skills and opportunities by providing the knowledge, tools and connections women need to successfully pursue leadership roles. The overall goal is to increase the number of women in public office. The short-term goal is to train 60 women to actively seek public office by 2012.  The mid-term objective is to increase the number of women actively seeking public office by 50% by 2014 and finally to increase North Dakota’s national ranking of women in the legislature by 10 in 2020.
