September 24: September Kickoff


Welcome Back!

Nancy Murray, Executive Committee
Welcome back to a new season of League programs. Your board has planned a variety of opportunities and venues for you to continue to learn more about the topics most concerning to Americans today. Money in politics is driving the campaign trail nationally, and when we see what local races cost candidates today, we realize it is not just a national concern. Our September kickoff’s speaker, Kate Titus of Common Cause, will give us some perspective on today’s practices, laws and what can be done to put demos, “the common people,” back in democracy. There are other issues of importance we intend to explore besides elections, so please join us through your participation to support the League of Women Voter’s mission in making democracy work.
