Kansas City, MO – Wendy Doyle, President & CEO of Women’s Foundation, released the following statement regarding Gov. Nixon’s appointment of Nicole Galloway as Missouri State Auditor:
“When women lead, they bring view points and unique ideas to develop solutions for our government and communities. However, for the past few years, not one of Missouri’s elected statewide executive offices was held by a woman. At the Women’s Foundation, we are dedicated to creating opportunities and helping remove barriers that prevent women from leading, and we commend Governor Jay Nixon for his appointment of Nicole Galloway to the position of State Auditor. We look forward to Nicole Galloway serving our state well. When women succeed, Missouri succeeds.
Tragic circumstances surround this vacancy and our sincerest thoughts and prayers remain with Auditor Schweich’s family and loved ones.”
