First-term legislators to share experiences
The Willamette Women Democrats will open its series of programs Sept. 11 at Oswego Lake Country Club. The program will feature five of Oregons first-term women legislators sharing the highs and low of the 2013 legislative season.
The panel includes Sen. Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, who represents the Portland area in Senate District 17; Rep. Shemia Fagan, representing North Clackamas and mid-Multnomah counties in Distrist 51; Rep. Alissa Keny-Guyer, House District 46; Rep. Jennifer Williamson, House District 36; and Rep. Jessica Vega Pederson, House District 47.
