As part of League of Women Voters 100th anniversary, we recognize Speaker Adrienne A. Jones, the first woman in history to hold this position in the Maryland House of Delegates. Running for public office after gaining experience with Baltimore County government and volunteering on political campaigns, she has been involved in the state legislature since 1997. Her focus area while serving Maryland is quality education. She is passionate about a strong, world-class public-school system. In this session, she introduced a legislative bill that would be the largest one-time school construction investment in Maryland’s history.

Today is the League of Women Voters 100th anniversary! As part of the League of Baltimore County’s celebration, we are recognizing women who serve as our elected officials through "Women Power the Vote," a national effort with more than 750 communities across the country celebrating on one unified day of action with various activities.
We recognize Dr. Michele Guyton, MD State House of Delegates District 42B (D). In office since January 2019, she ran because she believed her unique combination of personal and professional experiences would allow her to understand and respond to the concerns of her constituents in an enthusiastic and effective way. Her priority is serving her constituents, regardless of political party, and to make policy that will support vulnerable citizens.
