Regular Monthly Meeting
We meet the first Sunday of the Month at 3:30-5:00 at the United Community Church North in St. J, in the Parlor.
Our next meeting is this coming Sunday, March 3rd.
Any ideas/inspirations about short- or long-term projects? Please come to the meeting and bring them with you.
The LWVNEK had a GREAT meeting in February.
We had a member presentation on Ranked Choice Voting, which could make a very big difference in how our communities in Vermont approach choosing leaders! If you'd like to help out with this project, contact us using the form below.
We were also briefed on the project of making sure polling locations are open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. here in St. Johnsbury and eventually statewide. We have gotten a lot of feedback at our information/registration tables that people find St. J's polling hours of 10-7 problematic, so we're mobilizing! If you'd like to help out with this, please contact us using the form below.
We also briefed on the possibilities of doing information/registration tables at the St. J School and elsewhere to get people involved for Town Meeting Day. Also, the possibility of doing brief interviews on KATV of candidates in St. J's one contested race, for a one-year Select Board seat. If you would like to help with either of these, please contact us using the form below..
Also, a reminder that the LWV New England Leadership Conference looks good again this year and is happening the weekend of April 6-7 in Wells, Maine. The topic is "Advancing Civility in a Diverse New England". The tentative agenda is on our website. The cost of the conference is only $25, which includes lunch on Saturday. So, the only things you pay for are hotel (which is pretty reasonably priced and very cozy and has a YUMMY breakfast) and dinner (which is a really fun opportunity to make new friends; plus, the restaurant choices are exciting, at least to this foodie).
