NFWL Member Jennifer Mossotti recognized for receiving an Elected Women of Excellence Award!
“Lexington 9th District Councilmember Jennifer Mossotti has been received an Elected Women of Excellence Award for 2016 from the National Foundation for Women Legislators.
Mossotti was selected to receive the award for her leadership role in passing the minimum wage increase in Lexington which took effect July 1. The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Council voted 9-6 to increase the minimum wage last fall. Lexington became the second city in Kentucky to raise the minimum wage.
The Elected Women of Excellence Award was created to identify women who have worked tirelessly, often breaking down barriers and overcoming obstacles that once seemed insurmountable, to serve their communities. The award was established in 2013 in order to honor the hard work and dedication of women leaders from across the country.”
