Forum topic is Clallam County women in politics

The Clallam Progressive Coalition hosts a free public forum, “Clallam County Women in Politics: A Panel Discussion,” from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, March 3, in the Port Angeles Library’s Carver Room, 2210 S. Peabody St.

Moderated by Port Angeles mayor Sissi Bruch, the panel will consist of women across the political spectrum who serve in a variety of different capacities, from elected to appointed, local boards and committees to tribal positions of authority and influence.

Each panel member will share from their experiences in government as well as answer questions on the subject of women in politics.

The intent of the panel, organizers say, is to focus on the unique challenges that women face and contributions that they can make in serving the public in a political role, as well as encourage women to take an increased role in local government.

The Clallam Progressive Coalition is a non-partisan political action group registered through the Public Disclosure Commission, dedicated to “a platform of economic, social and environmental matters that ensures the health, rights and well-being of our community.”

Coalition members hope that this will be the first of many discussions.
