San Leandro Mayor Pauline  Cutter was elected Vice Chair of the United States Conference of Mayors-Women’s Leadership Alliance. This unique national caucus was founded in 1983 by then-Mayor Dianne Feinstein of San Francisco, a long-time champion of women’s rights.

The Women’s Leadership Alliance is dedicated to developing involvement and leadership potential for women mayors within the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM). In addition to supporting women mayors, the Alliance brings women leaders together to magnify their voice within the Conference and create a dialogue regarding policy issues that are of importance to women.

“From equal pay to access to affordable health services, we will work to continue to raise awareness on these very important issues and work for gender equality for the women of tomorrow,” noted Mayor Cutter.  “And of course, as I undertake the efforts of the Alliance, I am inspired by the example and ongoing work of one of our nation’s great public servants who I am proud to call my senior United States Senator – Dianne Feinstein.”

Mayor Marilyn Strickland of Tacoma, Wash., is the incoming President but will depart office at the end of this year.  The election occurred during USCM’s Annual Meeting that took place in Miami Beach from June 23rd to June 26th.
