Town’s First Female Mayor Helps Community Honor Female Employees’ Contributions
to Public Service During Women’s History Month
Hamilton’s first female Mayor is
announcing a breakfast to honor the contributions that female employees make in
the Hamilton Township Municipal Government.
The breakfast, which will take
place in late March (Women’s History Month), will recognize the leadership and
contributions of Hamilton’s female employees.
During the breakfast, which will
be funded by the Mayor’s own campaign account and not by taxpayer dollars, the Township’s Division of Health
will also provide women’s health information to Hamilton’s female employees.
Also as part of the Women’s History
Month effort, Yaede will be visiting
Hamilton’s Crockett Middle School on March 27th to speak to students.
“This month, I will be speaking to
our school children about my own personal experiences in pursuing elected
office, while encouraging girls and young women to continue seeking their
goals, whether in elected office or any other profession,” says Yaede.
In the spirit of Women’s History
Month, Yaede also wants to illustrate that the significant contributions that
women make in Hamilton Township and across our country.
Mayor Yaede noted that the Hamilton
Township Municipal Government benefits from females in several leadership and
supervisory positions, such as: a Council Member, Municipal Clerk, Deputy
Municipal Clerk, Tax Collector, Assistant Tax Assessor, Budget Officer, Purchasing Agent, Housing and
Urban Development Office Director, Municipal Court Director, Municipal Court
Assistant Director, HamStat Call Center Supervisor, Hamilton Alliance Against
Substance Abuse Coordinator, Administrative Director of Public Health Nursing, as well as superior ranking Police Officers.
“I know the challenges that I faced
as a women who sought to become my town’s first female Mayor; and I think it is
important that our community highlights the significant contributions that
women make every single day in the Hamilton Township Municipal Government,”
explains Mayor Yaede. “I also hope that
we can stand as a shining example of how equal pay has benefitted public
service in our community and will encourage many young girls to consider a
career in public service.”
