Thursday Topic Meeting on Newton Power Choice

What is Newton Power Choice and How Can you Impact the City’s Decisions About Your Energy Sources?  Come learn with LWVN! 

The City of Newton is developing a new electricity program, called Newton Power Choice.  It will increase the amount of renewable energy in your electricity supply.  How much renewable energy do you think the City should include in its energy contracts?  And how much would you be willing to pay for cleaner energy?

 Join members of the League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) on Thursday, November 15th from 8:00 am – 9:30 am at the Durant-Kenrick House (286 Waverley Ave, Newton) as we hear about this electricity aggregation program and the impact it will have on our community’s efforts to address climate change.  RSVPs to info@lwvnewton.org are appreciated!

October 18th Topic Meeting: What are all the November ballot questions about?

What are all the November ballot questions about?  Come learn with LWVN!

It’s almost time to decide how you’ll vote on the upcoming state and local ballot questions in November. This year there are three state ballot questions, and two local ballot questions. If you still don’t know what the ballot questions are about, or don’t have the facts you need to vote, we can help.

Join members of the League of Women Voters of Newton (LWVN) on Thursday, October 18th from 8:00 am – 9:30 am at the Durant-Kenrick House (286 Waverley Ave, Newton) as we hear from presenters on both sides of the issues for state ballot Question 1 regarding patient-to-nurse limits and the Newton ballot questions regarding the dispensation of marijuana.  Attendees will have an opportunity to ask presenters from each side questions at the end of each presentation. RSVPs to info@lwvnewton.org are appreciated!

Can’t join us on the 18th?  Our program on state ballot Question 1 will be taped soon and shown in late October.  For a discussion of state ballot Questions 2 and 3, watch the latest episode of ‘The League Presents’ on NewTV with guest Holly Gunner and LWVN Vice-President Lisa Mirabile.  The link to the program is:  https://newtv.org/recent-videos-community/120-the-league-presents/5302-ballot-questions-2-and-3.
