A Publication of The League of Women
Voters of Greater Birmingham Published October 2005
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.
Tehranchi brings personal commitment to her role as LWVGB
adopted a position on public transportation in 1980 that
subsequently updated in 1994 and 2005. I am serving
chair for the LWVGB this year.
This is an
exciting time to hold
the transportation position! The League has an opportunity to
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.
