You Should Know About...

Thank you Ruth.  Thank you all for your trust in me.

The Club is being passed on to me in good shape. Trite but true – I have huge shoes to fill because of the exceptional leaders that came before me. The Club is being passed on to me in good shape. Ruth likes to say that “Our brand is strong.” I agree.

Now what?  What shall we do with this strength?

I want to share with you the mission statement of our Club. This is taken from our by-laws (which members voted on and approved in 2011 and reapproved with modification to some of the articles in 2013). Here is the mission statement. 

The Democratic Women of Monterey County (DWMC) is a volunteer organization that champions Democratic candidates and campaigns on political issues that affect all individuals while emphasizing the role of women. DWMC is dedicated to creating opportunities for Democratic women to interact, participate, and educate themselves, and the community about political candidates and issues. 

Creating opportunities for Democratic women to interact, participate and educate themselves and the community.

Dear Friends,

Here's your opportunity to join with other community members in exploring the benefits and challenges of creating a national monument here in Santa Cruz, and engaging in conversation on how best to protect our treasured open space for future generations.

The Campaign for The Santa Cruz Redwoods National Monument is holding its kick-off event to give you the opportunity to learn about the proposed Monument. Santa Cruz has the opportunity to turn the 5800 acres of our Coast Dairies property into a permanently protected and publicly accessible National Monument. Come learn about the property, the process and how we can work together to encourage President Obama and Congress to designate Coast Dairies as The Santa Cruz Redwoods National Monument.

After all those years as a woman hearing 'not thin enough, not pretty enough, not smart enough, not this enough, not that enough,' almost overnight I woke up one morning and thought, 'I'm enough.'
