Judy Moler, Chapter President
As the transition of the leadership of the LWVTSC is on the horizon…and in keeping with the focus of women’s oral history, I would like to use my last column to let you know about our President Elect, soon to be President, Vicki Arnett. She has an interesting background growing up in the Hutchinson area in a Mennonite community which she believes fueled her interest in political activism and her professional desire to work with families living in poverty. We are fortunate to have her as our president and I am confident our chapter will thrive under her leadership. Read my full interview.

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.
