Terrell to address Ascension GOP Roundtable

Staff reports

Suzanne Haik Terrell, co-founder and co chairman of Project GOPink, will be the featured speaker at the Ascension GOP Roundtable, sponsored by Ascension Republican Women.

The Roundtable is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 19 at noon at the Grand Wall Restaurant, 1123 N. Airline Hwy. in Gonzales.

Terrell, the first woman ever elected to a statewide office in Louisiana, was the Republican candidate for the U. S. Senate in 2002.

As a result of her experiences as a woman in elected and appointed offices, and on the campaign trail, Terrell noted that women face different issues than their male counterparts when seeking public office. She put together the team that developed Project GOPink, a program designed to empower women with the tools to succeed in politics as well as community leaders.

Cost for the buffet lunch is $10.

Ascension GOP Roundtables are open to the public and guests are welcome.

Reservations are requested for a headcount.
