The Middletown Township Board of Supervisors is recognizing the 100th anniversary of the ratification of 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, empowering women with the right to vote. Middletown Township is especially proud to commemorate this day as one of few communities in the region with a majority of women elected to the Board of Supervisors and with a woman Township Manager.
The women’s suffrage movement in the United States was active at the time of the adoption of the US Constitution in 1789, but gained momentum after the Civil War. Started by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) would later be taken over by Carrie Chapman Catt who would see through their mission to bring the right to vote to American women on August 18, 1920.
“Women earning the right to vote 100 years ago marks the true beginning of our democracy,” said Middletown Township Board of Supervisors Chairperson Mike Ksiazek. “I’m proud that our community has so many women in positions of power and leadership and I am privileged to work alongside them.”
Vice Chairperson Amy Strouse was elected to the Middletown Township Board of Supervisors in 2015. She served as the Chairperson in 2018. Anna Payne and Dawn Quirple were elected to the Board of Supervisors in 2019. Stephanie Teoli Kuhls was appointed as the Township Manager in 2012.
“Many women before us fought hard for something that too many of us take for granted today,” said Middletown Township Board of Supervisors Vice Chairperson Amy Strouse. “We owe it to them by making our voices heard and exercising the right to vote.”
Middletown Township encourages all residents to celebrate their right to vote by voting in the 2020 General Election on November 3rd.
