From the President - Elaine TognerI

 We are proud to announce that Pasco NOW has named Rep. Amanda Murphy Legislator of the Year.  Murphy will be honored on Oct. 17 at our Wonder Women Awards Luncheon to be held at Seven Springs Golf and Country Club.  The luncheon will also feature wonder woman awardee Jane Castor, the retired Police Chief of Tampa, as keynote speaker.

First elected in a special election in 2013, Murphy has been representing the interests of Florida women and families ever since.  Statistics show a disproportionate number of women as Human Trafficking victims, and Murphy has been a leader in legislation to help victims of Human Trafficking and punish their abusers.  Nearly six in ten poor adults are women, and though the battle is yet to be won, Murphy has sponsored legislation to expand health care to poor and disadvantaged Florida citizens.  With her well-run legislative office, can do attitude, and strong involvement in the community, she is truly a wonder woman. 

Former Chief Jane Castor was the first female president of a police academy class and first female Chief of Police for Tampa. Working with the community, she reduced crime, developed programs for disadvantaged kids, and strategized the flawless policing of high profile events like the 2012 Republican National Convention. Castor showed up and did her job with professionalism. She is truly a wonder woman.

I hope you will join us for a fun luncheon. Details below.

"I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality."
