4-in-10 governor appointments are women


Gov. Jack Dalrymple prompted cries of sexism when he named just one woman to a new 14-member task force on property tax reform this month.

But a review of Dalrymple’s full track record of appointments to North Dakota’s various commissions and committees shows he’s close to hitting the 50-50 gender split.

Of the nearly 400 such appointments Dalrymple has made, four of every 10 were women, according to an analysis by The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead.
