Key state and local issues
By Suzanne Barba
What are the issues for 2013-14?
CASTRO VALLEY, Calif.
-- The League of Women Voters Eden Area will hold a forum to recommend the issues on which the state and local League should focus its attention 2013-14. Will it be campaign finance reform, air quality, water resources, mental health, gun control or something else?
The free forum will be held on Saturday, January 19, 2013, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Castro Valley Library, 3600 Norbridge Avenue, Castro Valley.
The State League has 24 positions on major issues in the areas of government, natural resources and social polices. Each of its positions, or “white papers,” is the result of one- or two-year studies by the League membership. The State League uses these positions to educate the public and/or advocate when various issues come to the fore through proposed legislation and propositions. The League “educates” through its Pro and Con presentations to public groups. The League does not mix education and advocacy events but does support or oppose issues based on its established positions.
Although the event is free to the public, please RSVP so that event materials are available, or direct any questions, to Jo Loss at JASLoss@aolo.com or call (510) 881-1285 (evenings).
