WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The League of Women Voters of the Lower Cape Fear hosted a luncheon Monday at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Wilmington discussing ways that women who are interested in politics can seek public office.
Wilmington Mayor Pro Tem Margaret Haynes, Leland Mayor Brenda Bozeman, Sunset Beach Councilwoman Jan Haris, and District Court Judge Sandra Ray participated in the event and took questions from those eager to learn about how to become the next leader of their community.
"Just think about your background and your own experience, and what you have that you can offer rather than your traditional politicians, who seem to run on big money and all we've got lots of people who will work for you," Burrell said.
Burrell also added that confidence is a good addition to how you campaign.
Officials with the League of Women Voters say the group is not just for females and encourages everyone to get out and vote.
