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.
Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge. Some of us have ventured out nevertheless, and so far we have not fallen off. It is my faith, my feminist faith, that we will not.
