Dear LWVN Members,
On behalf of Ellen Grody and myself, I want to thank you for having the trust and confidence in our ability and commitment to lead the League of Women Voters of Newton. We also want to thank Sue Flicop and Lisa Mirabile for their leadership and commitment to League over the past years. Ellen and I have very big shoes to fill and we are pleased that both Sue and Lisa are remaining on the Board of Directors.
We have a big year ahead:
- Most notably, the 19th Amendment Centennial. The League will be partnering with the Mayor’s office, Historic Newton, and the Newton Free Library to celebrate this important milestone. Please watch for more information on our website as we ramp up our planning and activities. If you have any ideas that you would like to share, please send them to email@example.com.
- Newton has city-wide Elections for Councilor-at-Large, Ward Councilor, and School Committee positions. Once again, the League will be co-sponsoring candidate forums with NewTV. The forums are held for competitive races, at this time, and are the best and most objective way for citizens to learn about the candidates.
- We ask that all league members Submit Questions for the candidates, by using the link.
As a Board we will be meeting in August to set our priorities for the 2019-2020 year. I encourage you to send your thoughts, feedback and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org as we go forward with our planning and ultimately implementation process.
As a new president, I want to hear from you. So please send to me your thoughts, anytime!
