Progress isn't assured by new or minority representation... see Jenny Durkan.

I don't know Laurie Jinkins (yet), but I won't be assessing her performance as House Speaker on the basis of what gender she's attracted to or that she's a woman, but by the bills she champions and advances into law and those that she squashes...

That said, from this article, I'm hopeful!

Jinkins has done good work on the Judiciary Committee. I'm really happy to see her take this role and I hope to see her set this tax system right side up!

This is great news. Laurie Jenkins is amazing. She is one of the most motivating speakers I have heard. I think she will inject some much needed new life into the house.
