Priorities that LWVBC adopted for this year include educating citizens on issues, actively participating in the voting machine replacement process in Bucks County, and continuing support of the efforts by Fair Districts PA and their coalition partners.
The public is invited to two programs the League is sponsoring in February.
LWVBC is a co-sponsor of How to Run for Elected Office, to be held this year on Sunday, February 10th, 2:00pm, at The Free Library of Northampton Township.
People interested in running for local office will find the expertise of the panelists, successfully elected to a variety of local offices, helpful in this program which has been held annually since 1989.
Bucks County Commissioner Diane M. Ellis-Marseglia will be a featured speaker.
Should the library be closed because of inclement weather, the program will be re-scheduled to Monday, February 11th at 6:30pm at the Langhorne Branch, Bucks County Free Library.
On Tuesday, February 19th at 7:00pm at The Free Library of Northampton Township, the League will present a program featuring Carol Kuniholm, founder and co-chair of Fair Districts PA.
The public is encouraged to attend to hear the updates on 2019 Redistricting Reform legislation strategy, current legislation status with their local legislators and key Harrisburg leaders, and what people can do to advocate for Redistricting Reform in 2019.
Should the program need to be re-scheduled, it will be held the following Tuesday, February 26th, 7:00pm, at the library.
Details on these and additional programs and activities of LWVBC can be found at www.lwvbucks.org.
Membership in the LWVBC is open to people 16 and older, and with it brings membership in the state and national organizations.
In addition to studies and programming, the LWVBC continues its long tradition of moderating candidate forums, assembling legislative guides and candidate guides, registering voters all the while never supporting or opposing any political party or candidate.
All of this is made possible by the volunteers in the membership of LWVBC.
