Reports in a Business Week article, an ABC video and countless other media outlets announced that New Hampshire will become the first state to have women in control of the governor’s office and the entire congressional delegation.

The Business Week article reports:

Democrats Carol Shea-Porter and Ann McLane Kuster defeated incumbent Republican men for seats in the House. Senators Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat, and Kelly Ayotte, a Republican, were not up for reelection, and they remain in office. Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan, a Democratic state senator, will replace retiring Democrat Governor John Lynch.

Women have been breaking the glass ceiling in New Hampshire since 1975, according to the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N. J. I remember the days when Erie had Judy Lynch as county executive, Joyce Savocchio as mayor and numerous women as county and city council members. A lot of eyes will be on New Hampshire come January.

The sun shines on Her Times, even in bad weather.  Our cover gals — the Berlins and Gloria Morgan — must have some kind of magic, along with Erie Times-News photographer Greg Wohlford, because the day the cover photo was taken was rainy, cloudy and cold. Do these gals sparkle or what? And they should — they made it a family affair — running and walking in the Her Times 5K (on an equally miserable cold and rainy day). Sunny dispositions make for great stories!
Inside, we also have the inspiring story of Ginny Keim. I’ve known Ginny for a long time, and she was on a mission. She biked 425 miles in six days and raised $3,000 for the YMCA. That may not sound like something spectacular for a fitness buff, but Ginny was not a cyclist. She trained for a year and she did it.  I am so glad she shared this story. It’s encouraging to all of us that we can do some pretty awesome things if we put our minds to it.

And Sabrina Fischer of The Sassy Peacock gave us a great story with a makeover of Alice DeGeorge — awesome outfits and great prices! And speaking of awesome outfits, don’t miss our free stuff this month – stunning red dress, fun cape/coat, Ginny’s earrings and 100 years of Girls Scouts book. Great times at Her Times!
