Did any of you attend the State Democratic Convention last weekend? Did it energize you or motive you to get more involved? Consider joining the Board of the San Francisco Chapter of NWPC. Please contact Micha Star Liberty at email@example.com for more information.
NWPC-SF would like to offer our heartfelt congratulations to our successful endorsed candidates. We know that Carmen Chu, Natalie Berg, Sandra Lee Fewer, Rachel Norton and Lynette Sweet will continue to do the San Francisco women’s political community proud throughout their terms in office. We would also like to acknowledge all of our endorsed candidates who ran this cycle and, although they made a good showing, did not prevail. We hope each of you will continue to serve your communities and we thank you for being involved in the political process. You make us proud.
We have been extraordinarily busy these last few weeks with political endorsements for the November 2008 election. We are pleased to recommend to you a stellar slate of female candidates for the November election.
Our slate is as follows:
Board of Supervisors
District 1 Sue Lee
District 3 Denise McCarthy
District 4 Carmen Chu
District 9 Eva Royale
District 11 Myrna LimCollege Board
Sandra Lee Fewer
BART Board District 7
Please come to Soluna Lounge at 272 McAllister Street (http://www.solunasf.com/) between 6pm and 7pm this coming Monday, September 8th to vote to approve the slate. Please note that you will be eligible to vote on Monday if you have paid your NPWC-SF dues and have attended one NWPC-SF co-sponsored or sponsored event in the last 365 days.
Because getting more pro-choice women into elected office is our number one goal at NWPC, we have worked hard this election cycle and have faced some difficult choices during this round of endorsements. We would be remise to not thank all of the female candidates who applied for our endorsement. We wish you the best of luck and continued success in politics.Again, please join us this coming Monday at 6pm and make your choices known. As always, we value your support as we work with you to achieve our goals of increasing women’s participation in the political process and creating a true political power base in San Francisco to achieve equality for all women.
Please join NWPC along with the Women’s Caucus of the San Francisco Trial Lawyers Association to discuss:
- Special consideration for female political candidates
- How has (and will) race & gender affect the presidential race?
- What are the sociological impacts?
