I wonder if there are other areas where there seems to be a strong presence of women in leadership positions. I ask this, because that seems to be the case in the area I live in.

City of Syracuse

Onondaga County - Office of the County Executive

Meet Chancellor Cantor

OCC::President

SUNY Oswego - President's Biography

City of Cortland NY Office of the Mayor

Ms. Sharon Contreras to Be Named Superintendent of Schools | The Syracuse City School District (http://www.syracusecityschools.com/?q=node/4140 - broken link)

About the President (http://www.wells.edu/president/about_the_president.htm - broken link)

I might have some others, but I think people get the idea.

I am not sure about exact figures but I would think New York City has a lot of strong female leaders because last I heard NYC has lots of career women who don't get married. Also, there is a strong feminist type of culture there too.

If I'm reading it right Houston's mayor, the city secretary, and six of its fourteen council members are women. That might not equal Syracuse, but is the top I found for the biggest cities.

Office of the City Secretary
City Council Home Page

In Port St. Lucie, Florida the Mayor, the Vice-Mayor, the City Clerk, and two of the three Council members are women.
