Congratulations to Rae Weese Woman of the Year

Tulsa's Heart of the Party organization honored their 2006 Woman of the Year, Rae Weese, today at their annual Just Desserts event at the Martin Regional Library in Tulsa. Congratulations Rae!

HOP also recognized their three delegates to Oklahoma Girls State.

I had the privilege of speaking to the group before the recognitions. It was good to see Rep. Jeannie McDaniel there, she took a short break from doorknocking Sunday afternoon to be at the event honoring Democratic women in Tulsa. Also taking a break from doorknocking were Rae and Dennis Weese.

Ruby Taylor, President of the Oklahoma Federation of Democratic Women, drove over from Vinita. Good to see you Ruby! Anita Norman was there also, she's everywhere where women and Democrats are involved. Good to see you too Anita.

Tulsa County chair Patty Basnett was there as was former chair Elaine Dodd. (Elaine and I had a discussion about the use of the title "chair" and whether I preferred chair, chairman, chairwoman, or chairperson. I don't care, a chair is a piece of furniture and I prefer to think of myself in motion; titles aren't so important to me, but getting things done is important!)

Was good to see Don and Lois Ross from Tahlequah also.

This group really reaches out to Democrats in the region. Thanks for the opportunity to visit today!

Yes, I too want to offer my Congratulations to Rae Weese for being selected " Heart of the Party Woman of the Year 2006" I was very proud to have been in the audience to see her except this prestigious award.She has spent countless hours working to promote "womens' issues" and for that I am very appreciative!
Tulsa County is well aware of the Heart of the Party Federation of Democratic Women! Keep on keeping on!

Thank you so much for the recognition. As I said Sunday, nothing that I did was accomplished alone. Each and everyone in our organization had a hand, foot, voice, or money in everything that "we" accomplished. I am truly humbled by this honor and I hope to live up to everyone's expectations.

World Peace!

Thank you so much for this recognition. As I said Sunday, nothing that I did was done without the help of the hands, feet, voices, and money of others in our group. I am truly humbled by this honor and I hope to live up to everyone's expectations.

Thank you so much, Lisa, for driving up the long, boring Pike to be with us and give us that inspirational speech. I was so impressed with all of the out of Tulsa attendees.

World Peace!
