I Can Do That: Women Seeking Public Office

We had a wonderful turnout of members and guests for our March 26, 2018 panel discussion on women seeking public office. Thanks to our panelists: panel moderator and Wilmington Mayor pro-tem Margaret Haynes, Leland Mayor Brenda Bozeman, Sunset Beach City Council member Jan Harris and the Honorable Sandra Ray, District 5. These women enlightened and inspired us with their comments about the joys and challenges of running for public office.
