Margie McDermott was LWVGB president when I joined in 1993. That year I participated on the League's health care reform committee. In later years, I served as the action chair for the LWV.  In that role, I telephoned members to alert them of upcoming legislation.

Jessie Tehranchi brings personal commitment to her role as LWVGB transportation chair.

LWVGB adopted a position on public transportation in 1980 that was subsequently updated in 1994 and 2005.  I am serving as transportation chair for the LWVGB this year.
This is an exciting time to hold the transportation position!  The League has an opportunity to be a leading advocacy organization in the public transportation movement. Expansion of our public transportation system is critical for Greater Birmingham’s development and growth. It will require our voices to get this public transportation legislation passed. I hope that you will join in on the action. As upcoming transit legislation is introduced in the Alabama state legislature, I will be asking you to call your state representatives to ask for their support. Please do your part to promote the public transportation cause.
