LWVN Help Wanted: CPC, EIC, Municipal Finance, and ‘The League Presents…’

HELP WANTED:  If you are interested in ‘doing more’, we have three opportunities for you!

LWVN’s Community Preservation Committee (CPC):  This committee observes Newton’s Community Preservation Commission meetings, reads the applications before the Commission, and comments on each one.  We have a group of people who are willing to read the applications, but need a chairperson to coordinate the process.  This is not a huge time commitment!  The Newton Commission meets at most once a month, their meetings end at a reasonable time, and readings/letters only need to be coordinated a few times a year (only when there is an application).

LWVN Committee Chairs for Environmental Issues Committee and for Municipal Finance Committee:  These are chances to re-form committees that are no longer active.  We are looking for people willing to chair each group, set up regular meetings and set modest goals to start.

Co-Producer for The League Presents…:  Our monthly show is recorded at NewTV and can cover a wide range of topics.  Being a co-producer means organizing the guests and hosts for LWVN’s monthly TV program, working with both to develop questions on the topic, and communicating with your co-producer and director.  A co-producer does need some NewTV training, and it would be helpful to know how to use a camera or some of the other technology.  Taping is once a month and we have a regular schedule, which makes planning ahead easier, so this is not a huge time commitment, but is a lot of fun!

3rd Annual Gas Leak Tagging Event on April 28th, 9 am from Mothers Out Front

Join Newton MothersOutFront at the 3rd Annual Gas Leak Tagging Event. April 28, 9am, part of Newton Serves Day of Community Service.

Natural gas is leaking near homes, schools & businesses. Natural gas is 95% methane, a potent greenhouse gas. Gas leaks are hazardous because they: can explode, damage our health, kill trees.

Gas leaks overwhelm efforts to reduce greenhouse gas. Most of our gas contains fracking chemicals. Utilities charge you for the lost gas!
