LI Women Discuss Local Issues

 DSC0210_001_fpThe 1st Long Island Women's Mixer took place on Sunday January 6, 2013 at local coffee shop Sip This.  Dozens of women and men gathered to tackle the issues facing women of Nassau County.  An expert panel of women from diverse backgrounds shared their thoughts and concerns with the group in attendance.  Issues discussed included the lack of affordable child care, wage equality, education for special needs children, achieving balance in the workplace and home, the importance of civic engagement as well as the difficulties women entrepreneurs face with local government when starting a business.  The group was also addressed by Adam Haber candidate for Nassau County Executive who shared his vision for reforming Nassau County government.

The 1st Annual Women's Mixer of Western Nassau County was a complete success. I would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and true dedication to their communities. The mothers, professional women, female community & business leaders of Elmont, Valley Stream, Franklin Square, Floral Park, Bellerose, Garden City, Freeport, Merrick, and Mineola were out in full force, united, and prepared to make a difference in their own backyards. Thank you to Monique Hardial-Swaby, Tammie Williams, Natalie Cange, Valley Stream Mom, Adam Haber and my friends @ Sip This for making this event a memorable one.
