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.”
