Liz Bobo Inducted into the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame

Last week, we learned that one of our current Board members has been honored for her lifetime service to Maryland and its people. She was the first woman to be elected County Executive in the State and served eight years on the Howard County Council and twenty (20) years in the Maryland House of Delegates.

In 2007, the second year of its existence, UULM-MD presented Liz with its Lawmaker of the Year Award for “Being an outstanding leader with integrity and moral courage; Providing leadership that reflects Unitarian Universalist values of freedom, justice, and acceptance” and playing a leading role in measures to combat Climate Change, promote LGBTQ+ rights, and support accessible, affordable, quality health care for all Marylanders.

In 2015, after she had retired from the House of Delegates, we invited her to join our Board, and we are immensely proud to call her a friend, mentor and leader for our shared values in the public square.
