Gayle Uilkema’s Campaign Fund Donation to AAUW-OML Scholarships for Women

The following is an excerpt from a letter from Carol T. Singer, Treasurer of long-time AAUW member and Contra Costa County Supervisor Gayle Uilkema:

Gayle Uilkema, Supervisor for District 2, Contra Costa County, passed away in May [2012] after serving on the Board of Supervisors for almost 16 years. In 2011 Gayle had announced her intention not to seek re-election to a fifth term on the board, beginning in January 2013.

Gayle had planned to take some time to pursue her personal life and perhaps then seek election to another office. When it became apparent that this would not happen, Gayle allocated her campaign funds to organizations in District 2. She was always very concerned about the needs of the people she represented, and she spent time considering where the funds might be most useful.

As Supervisor Uilkema’s campaign Treasurer, I am distributing her campaign funds in accordance with her wishes and with regard to State law governing the allocation of such funds. A check is enclosed to your organization. Gayle wished that these funds be used for local scholarships of $5,000 each for girls, graduate and undergraduate.

Carol T. Singer, Treasurer, Campaign to Re-elect Gayle Uilkema
