Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek AAUW Membership Brunch
September 21, 2013 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm
Why are fewer women running for office? The New York Times recently reported that in California and nationwide, â€œthe representation of women in state and local government has been in steady decline the past 12 years.â€Â Cindy Silva, mayor of Walnut Creek, will tackle this subject when she speaks on â€œWomen at the Local Elected Level: Making a Difference,â€ at the Danville-Alamo-Walnut Creek American Association of University Women (AAUW) Annual Brunch.
The subject hits close to home for Mayor Silva who has dedicated the past 20 years as a public servant and community volunteer for one of the countyâ€™s most vital cities. As keynote speaker, she will share her thoughts on public office and more. To register, go toÂ http://daw-ca.aauw.net/
