Making Democracy Work
"Making Democracy Work"
Increasing voter participation and campaign finance reform are part of the activity of this Committee Co-Chaired by Jean Aoki and Toni Worst.
Unfortunately Jean was in an accident while on vacation last month and sustained a fractured shoulder and knee. She has decided it is bad luck to travel with Arlene Ellis since each got into an accident six months apart with each attending to the other in Emergency Rooms.
However, back to "Making Democracy Work". the LWVUS at the Chicago Convention in 1996 decided to make this the priority issue for League for the next two years. We see this as an on-going program that will need the attention of League for years to come. All interested members are urged to call Jean or Toni and become involved.
