President's Message

Anne Omstead, 2017, President LWV North County San Diego

During 2019 we will be starting off the year with a dynamic program on Guns and the Fear of Gun Violence in our Community. In February, we will, as always, do Program Planning for our local League, but also for our State League. We will be having General meetings about the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), Climate Change, and the I-5 Corridor Improvements in later months. One of League’s great attractions is the wide variety of factual information members can learn at our General Meetings. Plan to be an active member if you aren’t already and join us at meetings or one of our many interest groups. It just gets better and better for our members!

After an active year engaged in Voter Service, it is a pleasure to think ahead about our next year involvement with Voter Service. During 2019 we are going to be working on planning for the 2020 election season and make our various Voter Services (Moderating Candidate and Issues Forums, presenting the Pros & Cons of ballot measures, Mail Ballot Drop Off Service with the Registrar of Voters, providing information to voters on how to evaluate candidates and ballot measures, finding and using trusted sources of information such as VotersEdge, and becoming informed voters) even more effective. Any suggestions or pitching in to help will be much appreciated. Call or email me to get involved!
