MWPAC’s Elected Women’s Luncheon

Once again, the Marin Women’s Political Action Committee is planning to honor the county’s women office holders at our Elected Women’s Luncheon, which will be held this year on Friday, March 13, 11:30- open doors 12:00pm lunch at San Rafael’s McInnis Park Clubhouse. We will also recognize Marin’s young women student leaders.

And once again, we are asking those who can, to donate $25 to cover the cost of a student’s lunch. This is a wonderful opportunity for young women to meet successful local and statewide women leaders. Our future is in the hands of these young women, and they receive an inspiring message from this event — that they too can accomplish great things.

To pay in advance for your membership and/or luncheon or to make a donation to help defray the cost of our young student lunch guests, please visit our web site: http://mwpac.org/about-us/donate/ Luncheon plus membership renewal is $70. Luncheon is $40 (membership alone is $40 so you save $10 with our “two-fer”.). If you donate to sponsor a student, it is an additional $25. You may also send a check to MWPAC, PO Box 113, Kentfield, CA 94914. Please write on your check what you are paying for.

Thank you for your generosity!


Election Night Wrap Up

Guest speakers Greg Brockbank, attorney and former San Rafael City councilman; Jeanne MacLeamy, architect and Novato City Council Member, and Brad Breithaupt, Opinion Page Editor of the Marin IJ, discuss the outcome of November 4th, 2014 election, locally and beyond.


Candidates Endorsement Night

Three endorsed for Marin Healthcare Board

The Marin Women’s Political Action Committee held its Endorsement Night Sept. 22 and members voted to endorse Evelyn Foster, Jennifer Hershon and Jennifer Rienks for the Marin Healthcare District board of directors. The group also voted to recommend Jonathan Leone for Sausalito City Council.

MWPAC members can recommend male candidates who support our issues if they are not directly running against a qualified woman, and receive 51 per cent of the votes. In the case of Sausalito, there were two seats open and only one woman running. In the case of the Marin Municipal Water District Board, Division 3, Candidate Larry Bragman received enough votes to block Incumbent Liza Crosse’s endorsement. Bragman was critical of the Board’s handling of several issues.


Candidates Training Workshop a Big Success

Candidates

Approximately 35 people attended MWPAC’s Candidates Training Workshop on Monday, August 18.  Considering this is an “off” year with few big races at the local level, we were pleasantly surprised at the turn out at the Redwoods Presbyterian Church in Larkspur.  Ed Vorous provided a sumptuous feast before the program, which included presentations from campaign consultants, giving their hard-earned advice about how to run a campaign, and several speakers representing the media, unions and organizations that endorse.  It was agreed by the endorsers that candidates have to make public their phone numbers and email addresses so that endorsers can find them.  Supervisor Judy Arnold made an excellent presentation on what it’s like to run in a race fraught with controversy.
