Opposition to gender measure

Some local leaders say they oppose a measure that would force government bodies to strive to have an equal number of men and women serve on local boards and commissions.

Mangold also says the requirement might keep them from finding the person who is most qualified. He made the comments during a legislative briefing at the Washington County Courthouse yesterday.
