The Local Agenda Committee Reports
Although the Local Agenda Committee has made no report to the membership of the League since before the May unit meetings, even cursory reading of the front pages of our local newspapers should have kept everyone aware that the Committee has not been exactly idle.
Since League consensus and approval by the Board, following the May meetings, turned on the green light for action in the area of ethics in government, the Local Agenda Committee has represented the League in a rapid series of developments of major importance in our community. These are the highlights:
The membership is reminded that League responsibility in this area continues. If our suggestions result in an effort to amend the Charter to achieve the goals we have proposed, our assistance will be required in persuading the public that this is the proper course of action.
Meanwhile, the Local Agenda Committee is confronted with continuing. research and action in the fundamental problem of ethics in government, and has been asked by the membership to pursue three supplementary topics in the same general area. Each of these will require a project chairman and a dedicated sub-committee, so if our current conspicuous success persuades you to join the efforts of the Local Agenda Committee, please call chairman Lela Brewer at 983-924 or Vice-chairman Mary George at 264-496. The supplemental areas to be researched with the idea of presentation to the membership in our fall meetings are:
The Local Agenda Committee will continue to meet during the summer (first and third Thursday mornings at 9:30) at Bea Levine's new home -2182 Round Top Drive. Please come.
Credit where it is due in the current project: Marguerite Simson has represented the State League, and Nancy Dykes the Honolulu League. The Local Agenda Committee representatives have been Lela Brewer, Mary George, Peggy Gressitt, Anne Miller, Fredda Sullam, and Ginger Yeager.
