Seeking more women to serve on local government

Bev Campbell would like to see more women in the council chamber.

Picton councillor Bev Campbell will facilitate a panel-based workshop for women toying with the idea of entering municipal politics.
“My overarching goal is, of course, to increase the number of women in policy-shaping roles and in particular, as members of Prince Edward County Council,” she said.
“My objective is provide a non-threatening opportunity for women to explore the idea and determine if it might be for them. As well, I intend to offer follow-up support options for those who might want to pursue the notion more vigorously.”
A panel of women with experience in the workforce, managing the job environment and one who watches local politicians in action will talk about their experiences and share their views on the role of municipal councillors in PEC.
“If you know of a woman who might benefit from this opportunity, I’d appreciate you passing on this invitation.”
The event is set for Monday, Oct. 29 from 7-9 p.m. in the Stone Room at Macaulay House, 35 Church Street, Picton. $12 per person, or bring a friend for $20 for both.
Advanced registration would be appreciated but not required. Light refreshments provided by the Friends of Macaulay House. Contact Bev Campbell @ 613-476-3260 or email silverwolf@sympatico.ca.

This event is presented by Campbell and friends as a personal initiative and is not an offering by the Corporation of The County of Prince Edward. The next municipal election is to be held in October 2014.
