Do you know an outstanding woman who serves the Long Beach, San Pedro, Signal Hill or Catalina Island communities?
The office of Assemblymember Patrick O’Donnell is now accepting nominations for his annual “Women of Distinction” ceremony, which recognizes women who have “gone above and beyond to serve the community of the 70th Assembly District.”
“It is an honor to celebrate the great women of AD 70 each year,” O’Donnell said in a statement. “As a parent and a teacher, I value the contributions of the women in our lives who serve as community leaders, volunteers, business owners, and heads of families.”
Nominations can be made in five specific categories: Creative Industries, Business, Community Service, Education, and Health Services via the assemblymember’s website here, by email to [email protected], by fax to (562) 429-7871, or by mail or delivery to the Assemblymember’s Long Beach District Office at 5000 East Spring Street, Suite 550.
The nomination deadline is Thursday, February 22. Nominees will be reviewed and contacted by March 1.
Free news isn’t cheap.
We believe that everyone should have access to important local news, for free.
However, it costs money to keep a local news organization like this one—independently owned and operated here in Long Beach, without the backing of any national corporation—alive.
If independent local news is important to you, please consider supporting us with a monthly or one-time contribution. Read more.
