We are delighted that Representative Sharon Pritchett was honored with the 2013 Service Award from Women Elected to Municipal Government (WEMG) in Florida.
At the award ceremony (August 16 in Orlando), Rep. Pritchett stressed the importance of supporting, uplifting and encouraging women of all walks of life and expressed her eagerness to make a significant and positive contribution to the constituents she represents in Florida House District 102.
The organization encourages active involvement of women officials in the policy-making process and programs concerned with municipal government or importance to women.
Representative Pritchett was an active member of the organization from 2003 through 2010, and while serving as a Councilmember on the City of Miami Gardens City Council, she served as the organization’s second vice president, first vice president, and in 2008 as its president. Under her leadership, the organization increased its member participation and forged consensus around many issues pertaining to the status of women.
"Her compassionate, dedicated, and still humble spirit is a source of inspiration to all women elected to municipal government," Felicia M. Brunson, current president of WEMG and Vice Mayor of the City of West Park, said of Representative Pritchett.
