Female business owners will meet Friday with state, federal and local elected officials to discuss national issues with significant effects on small businesses.

U.S. Rep. Katie Porter (D-Irvine) is scheduled to appear along with state Assembly members Cottie Petrie-Norris (D-Laguna Beach) and Stephen Choi (R-Irvine), state Sen. John Moorlach (R-Costa Mesa), Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner and others at the third annual Legislative Breakfast presented by the Orange County chapter of the National Assn. of Women Business Owners.

“This breakfast is an opportunity for women business owners to participate in actively creating a business environment that will help them thrive,” NAWBO-OC President Katie Adams Farrell said in a statement. “We need to be a bigger part of the process, and this is part of that effort.”

The breakfast will run from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m. at UC Irvine’s Newkirk Alumni Center, 450 Alumni Court. Tickets are available to the public for $35, including breakfast.
