Making Democracy Work

President's Message

President's Message Winter 2018

Welcome to the League of Women Voters San Jose/Santa Clara website. I am honored to be this year's president.

As 2018 begins, the League looks forward to many opportunities to further our work in strengthening our Democracy.

Many of our efforts this year will involve preparing for 2018 elections. We will be focused on for registering voters and preparing Voter's Edge our informative publication where you can get information relating to candidates, measures and who supports them. Both of these programs are focused on assuring that we have an educated and informed electorate. Later this year, we will prepare for Pro/Con presentations and candidate forums. Be sure to visit this site regularly to find out how you can access these important activities.

Each year members interview our California legislators on issues of concern for League of Voters California (LWVC) as well as our local issues. This is a joint effort with other Leagues, and we participate in seven interviews: Bob Wieckowski (SD10), Jim Beall (SD15), Bill Monning (SD17), Evan Low (AD28), Mark Stone (AD29), Kansen Chu (AD25), and Ash Kalra (AD27). These informative interviews will be posted here as they are completed.

I thank you for all your contributions to our League. Your financial support makes our important work possible. Day after day the League works tirelessly to preserve our democracy through outreach, education and action. Hopefully, you will be as generous as you can to enable us to continue and expand our work. As always we make a commitment to Making Democracy Work.
