MN Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan says St. Paul's new all-female City Council should be "the norm."

Article here. Excerpt:

'During Tuesday’s inauguration ceremony held at the Ordway Theater, Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan told the freshmen members and incumbents, “while this is historic, it should also simply be the way it is. The norm.”

Flanagan also said this group of young, diverse, women leaders is part of the reality her daughter and other young women are growing up in.

“It is my daughter’s reality that a group of really smart and talented, dedicated women can get elected to lead their community,” Flanagan said. “I am honored and grateful that I get to go home tonight and I get to tell Siobhan that in St. Paul, the city council is led by all women and I hope she thinks ‘well why wouldn’t it be?’”'
