I was extremely pleased to learn that the Santa Cruz County Women's Commission asked the board of supervisors to direct every county department to analyze the impact on women of its budgets, policies and services. Once the analysis is complete, the board will need to consider if there are inequities that need to be addressed, and I want Eric Hammer to be on the board when this comes up.

Eric understands the issues impacting women in this county. He has listened to the thousands of people with whom he has personally connected during the campaign and learned of crime, economic inequities, and inadequate health care. He knows the importance of the county's 2011 Status of Women and Girls Report and of addressing the concerns it presents.

Because of his knowledge and keen awareness, he will help assure significant improvements for women and girls in our county. Vote him in.

Karen Burman, Felton
