The President’s Perspective

Carole Jordan, Chapter President

Here is an excerpt from the written and oral testimony I provided to the Redistricting Listening Tour, Aug. 13, 2021, in Leavenworth, KS:

Today I am representing the League of Women Voters of Topeka-Shawnee County.

I’m grateful for the chance to submit testimony today, because fair representation is important to everyone in this state and to the state’s future. I must note that driving for an hour to speak here during the workday is not a great hardship for me. I’m retired, and Leavenworth is a great city.

But I would urge you to conduct your next set of hearings during evenings and weekends when working people can participate too. Any action you take to make these hearings accessible in person or remotely will benefit all Kansans. That would also include Spanish and sign language interpretation.

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.
