A Publication of The League of Women Voters of Greater Birmingham

President's Message

The holidays are behind us (unless Groundhog Day is big in your family) and we have recovered from the Election Season. Now we move on to other League activities. Many members are currently interviewing local state legislators for the state League. This is to help the state advocacy committee in planning its work for the upcoming session. First-time interviewers often find the one-on-one experiences very interesting and informative.

The state League study of the Legislature is also in full swing. We will be presenting their initial work later in the spring, with an eye to taking consensus next fall. There is more information on this project elsewhere in this Voter.

I am gratified that so many new League members are getting involved, whether it is in Ginny Randolph's Voter Service committee, the Health Care study under Rebecca Stafford or the Legislative interviews. I hope some of the new and long-time members will want to serve on this board. As I've said many times, we are limited in what we can do only by our numbers.
