Blue Lake’s All Female City Council Makes the LA Times
California has 482 cities. Only 72 of them have a majority of women on their councils, according to California Women Lead, a nonpartisan group dedicated to increasing the number of elected and appointed female public officials. Fifty-six have no councilwomen at all.
It’s not just the all-female city council that makes Blue Lake unusual. Blue Lake’s city manager, Amanda Mager, is a woman. So is the town clerk.
The story also references the scandal which caused Blue Lake to disband its police department. Check the article out here.
