WIRE is a nonpartisan organization comprised of women and men committed to increasing the number of women in appointed and elected office in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. WIRE identifies and recruits candidates for public office and supports their efforts by providing a broad network of resources.
WIRE envisions a world where a significantly larger number of women hold appointed and elected public office, bringing their unique experience and perspective to focus on our community's problems. We believe that better public policy decisions result when all segments of the community are fully represented. WIRE is committed to expanding women's representation in local government today.
