The President’s Perspective

January, 2017

A message from our president, Judy Moler

As we begin a new calendar year, I reflect on our opportunities for renewal, rejuvenation and recommitting to our goals both personally and within the League of Women Voters. This will be an important year as elections for statewide office, state and US Congressional offices
will be held in November….primaries in August. We will work hard to register voters as well as campaign to get voters to the polls. While personal politics often cloud our view, we need
to keep our eyes on the prize of promoting fair and open elections and participation in the election process by all.

I am reminded of a quote by George William Curtis, (I hope correctly), entitled from The New Year: “That is our day of remembrance, our feast of hope, the first page of our fresh calendar of resolutions….”
As we open our first page of the calendar, I hope you will join me in making this a year of working toward the goals of our local League of Women Voters.


Join us to Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters has two separate and distinct roles:

  • Voters Services/Citizen Education: We present unbiased nonpartisan information about elections, the voting process, and issues.
  • Action/Advocacy: We are also nonpartisan; but after study we use our positions to advocate for or against particular policies in the public interest.

Join LWVTSC and start making a difference in our community. League membership is open to all women and men age 16 or older.
