Why MLWPC Membership?
These 2014 Board members offer their thoughts on MLWPC membership…
President Sherry Sinegra Conner
“I’ve been mayor of the City of Shively going into my 10th year. It’s a very rewarding job and I’ve received lots of backing from MLWPC throughout the years. It’s meant a lot to me to be able to look to these women for their encouragement and support”
Treasurer Bobbi Jo Weber
Bobbi Jo Weber shares a 39 year marriage with her husband, Bill, has three grown children, and 3 grandchildren with a fourth on the way! She is a partner at Wessel Insurance Agency, a family owned company that has operated in the same location for over 50 years.
I am a proud and participating member of the MLWPC for a simple reason: I am a female, and I have females, namely, a mother, aunts, sisters, nieces and granddaughters who are very important to me. The MLWPC is the only local, active, progressive women’s group that openly supports a woman’s right to “CHOICE”. In fact, CHOICE is the number one criteria that must be met to receive a MLWPC endorsement.
Membership Chair Virginia Woodward
Virginia, a graduate of the University of Louisville, is a licensed dental hygienist. She served as the national president of ADHA and has traveled extensively internationally related to access to health care. Former executive director for the Kentucky Commission on Women, the Governor’s Office for Board and Commissions, Virginia has worked on issues concerning women’s health and gender equality. She is the current executive director for the Board of Claims/ Crimes Victims Compensation Board and Sexual Assault Examination Program.
I am a member of the MLWPC because of its long standing commitment to leveling the political arena for progressive women and men. Having run for office I believe Hillary Clinton said it best: “There cannot be true democracy unless women’s voices are heard.”
