Your Vote Counts
Marjie Gray, Eletter editor
The Leadership Team wants to thank Scott Hartman and the League members who helped with the two candidates forums in Salida and BV. About 70 people attended each forum. The LWVCC believes it is very important for voters to hear and meet all candidates. Before the next election cycle in April, the board will be discussing other ways we can host candidates. We want to avoid the empty chair issues that emerged this year. If you have ideas, please share them with members of the board.
Thank you, Gail Brooks for setting up the LWVCC website, Facebook and the email template.
