The Pasco County Commission has reappointed Dr. Lisa Richardson and Cheryl Pollock to new three-year terms on the county’s Commission on the Status of Women (CSW).
The county board took the actions during two separate meetings in September.

Pollock is Premier Community HealthCare’s representative on the CSW, and was recommended for reappointment by Premier HealthCare. Her new term expires Sept. 8, 2023.
The CSW was established on Oct. 16, 1979, and was inaugurated to serve in an advisory capacity to the Pasco County Commission and county administrator, the community, and all agencies and the general public in Pasco County with respect to matters pertaining to the status of women, including, but not limited to, discrimination against women, employment of women, and the education of women, according to agenda backup materials.
On Sept. 13, 2016, commissioners voted to have 10 agencies provide nominees to serve on the CSW. County commissioners also each nominate one member, bringing the total membership on the CSW to 15.
The state college is one of the 10 nominating agencies. Richardson has been representing PHSC on the women’s commission since 2017.
