Kristine Howard, Vice – Chair
One day I received an invitation to join some community members for a meeting to celebrate President Obama’s birthday, and learn about working on his re-election. I thought: I have always wanted to work on a Presidential campaign. Since that Presidential campaign, I have worked on campaigns at every level. I met a wonderful group of women, and we have stayed friends.

Diane Welsh, Membership Committee
Prior to 2004, I was a very busy woman who loved doing things for my family and friends and building my business as a Sales Representative for Conair/Cuisinart. I was suffering thru George Bush’s second Presidential term and wondering how this country could withstand another 4 years. I decided that I really needed to stop complaining and start doing.
