Openness and Transparency in Government will be June Topic
Don Moler, adjunct professor at the Washburn University School of Law, will speak about openness and transparency in government at the June 5 Tuesday Topics meeting.. Remember to join us at our summer location, Faith Lutheran Church, 17th and Gage Blvd., for this open public meeting. An optional lunch will be available for $10 at 11:30, with the program beginning at noon.
Moler is an attorney with a J.D. from the University of Kansas, and he holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in political science from Eastern Illinois University, and a Masters of Public Administration degree from the University of Illinois. He was employed by the League of Kansas Municipalities in Topeka for 28 years where he served as the General Counsel and Executive Director until his retirement in December of 2013.
The shift from winter to spring and back again is being termed Sprinter by some. Using that term….I think that Sprinter describes our launch into Spring by the League of Women Voters Topeka- Shawnee County. A fast start was evidenced by the Annual Meeting with an attendance of 52 members and 3 guests. It was a weighty meeting that dealt with issues including by-law changes to make way for our League to pursue a 501(c)(3) designation. We learned at the meeting that we are blazing the trail for the state League and other local Leagues on this issue. Read entire letter.

- 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.
