Mayor’s Council on Women’s Advancement

Patricia Starks Johnson. Mary P. Starks. Ophelia T. Johnson. Daisy M. Starks. Ashley Johnson. Kennedy Johnson.

These women have shaped my life. I would not be the man I am today without the way each of them have touched my life.

This month, Women’s History Month, we recognize not only the notable women in history that have blazed a trail for us all. But, we reflect and recognize the women that have touched each of us personally. The women that are responsible for who we are.

There are far too many disparities and challenges that face women in our community. As Mayor, I will form the Mayor’s Council on Women’s Advancement because we need policy, we need action, we need a specific plan to ensure these challenges begin to be addressed.
