State Rep. Ruth Briggs King (R-Georgetown) had the honor of being featured recently in the national publication – ELYSIAN Magazine – for her outstanding work as a legislator and representative of her constituents in the 37th District.
ELYSIAN featured Rep. Briggs King – in addition to other women lawmakers who attended the National Foundation for Women Legislators’ Annual Conference in November – as part of an article titled “The Women Who Inspire Us.”
According to the ELYSIAN article, “The Representative is admired for her unwavering leadership, and strengths in organizational development and strategic planning” with “a proven track record to address and solve problems with an end-game of realizing results.”
The article further stated, “As a strong advocate on many issues, she also maintains a busy local schedule to be accessible and accountable to her constituents.”
Rep. Briggs King was quoted in the article as saying, “The most important part of my work is not what bills or policies we create in Dover, it is about helping people overcome barriers and challenges that impact their lives.
Rep. Briggs King further stated, “This past year, we have helped so many citizens overcome issues with their unemployment benefits. Our staff and I have taken many calls and worked to ensure benefits were received. ‘Many hands make light work’ and many hands are needed to address complex and community issues.”
