Congresswoman Renee Ellmers: Talking about Women Leaders in Public Service

Photo of the Week

I really enjoyed speaking on the panel “Women Leaders in Public Service” at the Junior League of Raleigh’s Center for Community Leadership this week. It was great to see such a good turnout of women interested in public service!


Weekly Update
The beauty of spring was on full display this week in the Second District with flowers and trees in lovely bloom. If you are going to be in Washington on April 16 or 17, and are interested in taking a White House Garden Tour, please contact my DC office at 202/225-4531.  You’ll find more information about the tours below.

At the beginning of the week, I was honored to join Associate Justice of the NC Supreme Court Cheri Beasley, Wake County DA Lorrin Freeman and Wake County Clerk of Superior Court, Jennifer Knox in a panel discussion hosted by the Junior League of Raleigh’s Government Relations and Public Affairs Committee. The topic was women leaders in public service and it was wonderful to see so many engaged on this subject. 

Also this week I visited a couple of local small businesses in Chatham County — first participating in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Chatham Business Services, then touring facilities and talking with employers and employees at Piedmont Health Services about the issues  that affect them.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact my office in Washington, Dunn or Asheboro if we can be of assistance to you!

Snapshots from the District
The photos below are from my visit to Piedmont Health Services in Pittsboro on Friday where I met with employees and toured the facility. This organization is comprised of 12 community health centers and PACE (Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly) sites which serve my district. ? While I was there, I was honored to receive the National Association of Community Health Centers’ Distinguished Community Health Advocate Award.

I also enjoyed speaking at the Chatham Business Services Grand Re-Opening in Pittsboro this week. Below are a few photos from the event.
