Briefing Notes for New Pittman Administration

In January, 2019 a delegation of WISE women met with County Executive Steuart Pittman to discuss priorities to the administration. A number of suggestions of early actions were put forward – some with a view to influencing the budget process, some with no budget implications at all. WISE urged the Pittman administration to increase its effectiveness by leveraging social movements like WISE and offered its support on a number of issues. It also emphasized that its role would continue to be to hold public officials to account, including the publication of annual scorecards. Pete Baron (Head, Legislative and Government Affairs) and Jennifer Purcell (Chief of Staff) also attended the meeting. We created a series of briefs in preparation for the meeting, outlining WISE’s work in each area along with suggestions for the new administration, which can be ready below. WISE looks forward to working to support the new administration around these priorities, flagging issues which we believe should be seen as more of a priority and in holding them accountable for their commitments and actions.
