The search is on again for the Clarence electorate’s 2009 Woman of the Year.

Clarence MP Steve Cansdell is calling on local residents to nominate the 2009 Woman of the Year from the Clarence electorate which includes most of the Clarence and Richmond Valley local government areas.

“Last year we recognised tireless local community worker and Aboriginal leader Lenore Parker,” Mr Cansdell said.

“Previous winners have been Lower Clarence Relay for Life fundraiser Wendy Rose and charity champion Peg Maven, who are all tough acts to follow.

“I would again be particularly keen to salute a local woman with outstanding credentials in community service.

“I particularly encourage children to participate as we all know Mum is woman of the year every year.”

People wishing to nominate someone as Clarence Woman of the Year should call Mr Cansdell’s office on 6643 1244 for an application form. Nominations close 9 January 2009.
