There is a job for everyone and no experience is required.”The young Stradbally woman has been an avid supporter of women in politics for sometime. She attended Women for Election INSPIRE training last year where she had an opportunity to develop her campaigning skills and network with like-minded individuals.In addition, Vivienne previously interned at the American Association of University Women, in Washington D.C., one of America’s leading voices promoting gender equity for women and girls through research, education and advocacy, and lobbied at Capitol Hill as a result.She said: ‘I’m so fortunate to have received great support over the years from friends and family, neighbours, and colleagues within the Fine Gael party. Nobody gets elected on their own – it’s a real team effort.“I’m delighted to have the opportunity to contest this election and I hope I will be an example for other young women in County Laois who might be considering a leadership role of some sort, be it in politics, their local youth club, sports team, school or parish, to push ahead with their ambition and give it their best shot.”Modernisation of the Electoral Registration ProcessThe modernisation of the electoral registration process is a well-needed step in the right direction.Naeem Iqbal, who is running for election in the Portlaoise elections, fully supports the proposal of using Personal Public Service Numbers (PPSNs) and some limited data exchange between the local authorities for the verification purposes.He said: “The proposed reforms in the electoral registration process will encourage the wider population to play its due part which in result will further strengthen the democracy in theRepublic of Ireland.”SEE ALSO – The confirmed list of candidates in this year’s Local Elections Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad Facebooklast_img read more

Lynda Wilson, all Republicans from Vancouver, are inviting 17th District citizens to join them for a virtual town hall meeting to discuss the many issues of the 2021 legislative session. Photos courtesy of Washington State House Republican Communications“We are now more than halfway into the 2021 legislative session, debating and voting on major issues that will undoubtedly affect families in the 17th District and throughout the state. It’s important we hear from citizens, inform them about moving legislation, and receive their questions, comments and input about the session,” said Kraft. “The town hall is being conducted virtually online, so people can conveniently participate from the comfort of their homes.”The remote town hall meeting will be conducted using the Zoom platform on Mon., March 15 at 6:30 p.m. Those who would like to participate in the hour-long event must pre-register in advance for the conference by going to any of the three legislators’“I look forward to meeting with the people of the 17th District again, albeit remotely,” said Harris. “This will be a great opportunity for us as legislators to listen to our constituents and get a sense of what they are going through and what matters to them the most right now. I’m excited to hear from them and ready to listen and learn.”“I’ll be ready to update our constituents about the state budget situation, because the majority has put a long list of tax proposals on the table even though there’s no budget deficit, and a huge amount of federal money is likely to be coming to our state. On top of that, Republicans have already proposed budgets that do all sorts of good things without a need for more taxes,” said Wilson, who is the Senate Republican budget leader. “Also, this meeting is even more timely now that the Senate majority has approved an income-tax bill. Our constituents need to know what that means for them and why I opposed it.”The conference can only accommodate the first 500 attendees, so participants should register early. Participants can also register online at 2021 legislative session began Jan. 11 and is scheduled to end April 25.Information provided by Washington State House Republican Communications, houserepublicans.wa.govAdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:17th District2021 legislative sessionClark CountyClark County WashingtonLatestLegislative Town Halllocal newsRep.

Brian Lindoerfer named AVC for facilities operations and services

first_imgAssistant Vice Chancellor for Facilities Operations and Services Brian LindoerferLindoerfer, a CU Boulder alumnus, takes over a 400-person operation that includes grounds and building maintenance, utility and energy services, and custodial and recycling operations for most of the campus. Transportation Services will also soon transition to Facilities Operations and Services and report to Lindoerfer.The first day at CU for Lindoerfer, the current building services division manager for Boulder County, will be March 12. He replaces David Danielson, who retired in December.“Facilities operations and services plays an integral role in empowering the university’s mission of education and research,” Kang said. “Brian’s expertise in facilities, energy, sustainability and resiliency make him a great fit to expand upon the work that is already being done to provide world-class facilities and services that enable our students and faculty to explore our solar system, conduct impactful research and learn in a safe, comfortable environment.”Lindoerfer has spent the past two years at Boulder County, where he oversaw facilities management efforts, development of a strategic facilities master plan and negotiation of a power purchase agreement that helped the county achieve its goal of sourcing more than 50 percent of the power for its facilities from renewables.  Prior to joining the county, he spent 20 years as an officer in the Navy, retiring with the rank of commander. Most of his time in the Navy was spent with the Navy Civil Engineer Corps and included a stint at the Pentagon as financial program manager and congressional liaison, as well as time as director of public works at the Naval Submarine Base New London in Groton, Connecticut.A U.S. Naval Academy graduate, Lindoerfer holds a master’s degree in civil engineering from CU Boulder and an MBA from DePaul University. He is also a registered professional engineer in Colorado and a Certified Energy Manager.“I certainly have a passion for CU Boulder, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the institution in a role that so greatly impacts the success of all students, faculty and staff,” Lindoerfer said. “I am also excited to be able to continue to work with the Boulder community in many areas where we have common goals and interests.”Categories:AdministrationCampus Community Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Feb. 22, 2018 Vice Chancellor for Infrastructure and Sustainability David Kang has named Brian Lindoerfer assistant vice chancellor for facilities operations and services for the CU Boulder campus.last_img read more

The shifting meaning of sexual consent: Law professor presents Nov. 7

first_imgPublished: Oct. 17, 2018 Event informationWho: Open to the publicWhat: “The Laws of Attraction: The Shifting Meaning of Sexual Consent”When: Wednesday, Nov. 7, 5:30 p.m.Where: Haddon, Morgan and Foreman P.C., 150 E. 10th Avenue, DenverCost: Free for all Colorado Law and CU Boulder students, faculty, and staff, recent (2013-2018) graduates, and Law Alumni Ambassadors, $10 for all other alumni, and $20 for other guests.RegisterProfessor Aya Gruber will discuss the meaning of sexual consent in an upcoming lecture in Denver on Nov. 7. Her research and teaching areas focus on feminist legal theory, critical race theory, and criminal law. The slogans are ubiquitous: “Only ‘Yes’ Means ‘Yes'”; “Got Consent?”; “Consent is Hot, Assault is Not!” Clear consent is the rule, but the meaning of sexual consent is far from clear. The current state of confusion is evident in the numerous competing views about what constitutes mental agreement (grudging acceptance or eager desire?) and what comprises performative consent (passive acquiescence or an enthusiastic “yes”?). In the final lecture of the 2018 Colorado Law Talks series, Gruber will seek to clear up the consent confusion and chart the contours of the sexual consent framework, categorizing different definitions of affirmative consent, and critically describing arguments for and against affirmative consent. Examining the consent framework and the affirmative consent debate reveals exactly what is at stake in this new world of reform—a revelation necessary for meaningful dialogue on acceptable sex and acceptable sex regulation.Gruber’s forthcoming book, The Feminist War on Crime, is under contract with the University of California Press. Colorado Law Talks is a series of lectures in Denver that provide members of the community an opportunity to hear about the lecturers’ current research or teaching, and to discuss the questions and ideas that motivate, influence, and shape their work. A reception will follow.Thank you to Haddon, Morgan and Foreman P.C. for hosting this event.Categories:Newslast_img read more

The Wineries of Santa Clara Valley Retain Balzac Communications

The agency will help to promote the region and its wines to a broad range of consumers and trade.“Balzac is well positioned to communicate the vision for our wineries and our region,” said John Grogan, President of the Board of Directors for the Wineries of Santa Clara Valley. “The early settlers here called it the ‘Valley of Heart’s Delight,’ but when the Spanish arrived in Santa Clara, they first noted the area on their maps with a single word, uvas, meaning ‘grapes.’ Today there are more than two million people who live in the Santa Clara Valley, and only 1,500 acres of vineyards. With 28 wineries and a resurgent interest in the art of winemaking, we’ve seen a tremendous increase in visitors to Valley wineries over the past several years. The future is indeed bright.”“While most people think of integrated circuits and software when considering the Santa Clara Valley, the fact remains that the area has a long tradition of winemaking,” said Michael Wangbickler, CEO of Balzac Communications & Marketing. “We have an opportunity to demonstrate to the wine trade and interested enthusiasts that these wines are worth seeking out, and the wineries are definitely worth a visit. We’re excited by the prospect and look forward to working with the association over the coming year.”For more information on the Wineries of Santa Clara Valley and a list of members, interested parties should visit their website at Media interested in receiving samples and/or arranging a visit to the region may contact Michael Wangbickler by one of the methods listed above.About Balzac Communications & MarketingBalzac Communications & Marketing is a marketing communications agency with a no-nonsense approach to combining the strategies and tactics of marketing, public relations, advertising and graphic design to achieve the marketing goals of its clients.

Council Candidates Look to Keep Momentum Going in Columbia Falls

first_imgA noticeable buzz is surrounding this year’s municipal election in Columbia Falls, where optimism is springing forth and economic development is gaining momentum.All five candidates running for city council are echoing excitement for the community, reflecting the progress of a town that has struggled with high unemployment and few candidates in years past.“I think ultimately the council that’s been in place has done a great job. I wouldn’t take anything away from them,” John Piper, one of this year’s candidates, said. “I want that to continue, to be fiscally responsible and try to hold that line on taxes so we can afford to live here.”“It’s an exciting time in Columbia Falls,” incumbent Doug Karper said. “For 30 years we’ve been trying to get to the point where I think we are now.”Election day is Nov. 3 and absentee ballots are available Oct. 14. Voting will be conducted at City Hall, 130 Sixth St. W.This year’s election features two incumbents running for re-election — Karper and Darin Fisher— and three newcomers vying for their first four-year terms: Piper; Frederick “Erick” Robbins; and Tyler Lee Furry.Shawn Bates filed to run for the council but has withdrawn his candidacy after being hired by the city’s public works department.Incumbent Julie Plevel is not running for re-election, guaranteeing at least one new member will join the seven-member council, which features six councilors and the mayor.A developer has proposed a new hotel near Pinewood Park, which could be an economic catalyst for the city in many ways, including further establishing Columbia Falls as a strong tourism destination and the Gateway to Glacier. Other plans are surfacing for new commercial businesses in downtown, including a restaurant. The city is also considering the creation of an economic development plan, called a TEDD, for the industrial park near Railroad Street. The plan could include establishing a tax increment finance district, which would spur redevelopment opportunities. There are already initial plans for SmartLam, a cross laminated timber company, to build a massive manufacturing facility in the industrial park that could become the largest in the world.Karper, a maintenance supervisor with the Columbia Falls school district, is a longtime councilor who first began serving in the early 1990s.“I still have some passion for the city and what’s going on with this urban renewal,” he said. “I would just like to be a part of that going forward.”Karper credited the council for maintaining the town’s identity as a business friendly community and keeping infrastructure from falling apart.If re-elected, he said he would stay focused on being proactive in making sure the former Columbia Falls Aluminum Company plant is properly cleaned up.Fisher echoed similar plans and enthusiasm. He said he was proud of his first term serving on the council and that he wants to stay involved in the town’s progress.“We’ve got a great city council right now and a great city manager,” he said. “I think that Columbia Falls is going good places and I want to keep my fingers in that and help direct that.”Fisher, a trails manager for the U.S. Forest Service and a budding business owner who is opening a new brewery on U.S. Highway 2 with his wife, Carla, said the cleanup of CFAC is vital to the town and that he hopes to help furnish Columbia Falls’ redevelopment efforts.Robbins, a real estate agent who has lived in Columbia Falls for nearly 12 years, previously served on the Columbia Falls City-County Planning Board and felt inspired to get involved again with local government.“It’s a prime opportunity to help guide our town as we go through what I anticipate is a growth phase,” he said.He said his top priorities would be the cleanup of CFAC, as well as helping economic development continue in a responsible manner.“The city has made a name for itself as being business friendly. I’d like to see that trend continue but obviously some oversight is needed,” Robbins said.Furry, a 29-year-old web designer and developer who has lived in Columbia Falls for nearly three years, said he was inspired to join the race to “show that young people in our community could step up and try to help out.”Describing himself as Libertarian, he said protecting against unwarranted government overreach is important. He said the city should try and learn from Libby’s Superfund cleanup when addressing CFAC’s future. He also said a priority of his would be maintaining Columbia Falls’ identity as a town with strong industry while developing a healthy tourist economy.“I want to help keep Columbia Falls a cool Montana town where we can still have an industry and service-based economy and people can afford to live here,” he said.Piper, a supervisor at the Montana Veterans Home, said he ran when there appeared to be a shortage of candidates, but remains committed to the race.A lifelong Columbia Falls resident, he said it is important to keep the city’s historic industries intact and to maintain affordable housing. Revitalizing downtown is important, he said, along with cleaning up CFAC.“I don’t have a specific agenda. I think just from my longevity in the community, I think I’d be a good liaison between the city and the general public,” he said. Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.
