Last year I announced the 1st Women in Government Day sponsored by the Pima County/Tucson Women’s Commission (click here), for Women’s “Herstory” Month of March.
The 2nd annual event will be held on Friday, March 23 (note new location):
Over 60 nominations have been received for the 2nd Annual Women in Government Day to recognize outstanding women who have excelled in leadership, volunteerism, unsung heroine and in evolving young woman categories during their work in government positions. The event is sponsored by the Pima County / Tucson Women’s Commission.
The winners will be announced Friday, March 23 in a ceremony from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Moore Courtyard, Tucson Museum of Art, 140 N. Main Ave., Downtown Tucson, where a light lunch will be served. Jan Lesher deputy Pima County administrator and former chief of staff for operations for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, will be the keynote speaker. Her topic is “Women Keep it Going.”
The public is invited to attend this free event.

The Pima County Board of Supervisors will be issuing a proclamation today for “Women in Government Day” on March 23. They meet at 9 a.m. in their meeting room at 130 W. Congress Street. PCTWC Chair Alison Hughes will be accepting the proclamation on behalf of the Women’s Commission.
There was a large audience last year at this event at the small Women’s Commission meeting room at 240 N. Court, so thus the move to a larger, outdoor plaza at TMA. Stop by & show your support for the Women’s Commission and their hard work.
Update: winners of the 4 categories listed below in comment section.
