City Councilwoman AND League of Women Voters Member Meghan Sahli-Wells will speak to the March 19 meeting about Culver City issues, with emphasis on increasing voter turnout in our local elections as well as the possibility of consolidating more of our voting dates.
From Frances Talbott-White – As usual we will gather at 11:30 a.m. in the Community Room of Culver City Julian Dixon Library for optional brown-bag lunches, League business, and general sociability. Program will begin at noon and run to about 1:30pm. This will be a good time to invite your friends and tell them to anticipate a lively discussion.”
Michelle Dennis, a Member of our unit, presently teaching at UCLA on Public Budget and Finance at the Graduate School of Public Affairs will present the March program. She was the director of Finance/City Controller for the City of Santa Monica for 20 years.
Knowing that few people actually know how the State budget process works and how to find out budget information she will review the State budget situation for the present year, review the process of adoption while examining the ways that the state budget can become more accessible, understandable and how to increase effective citizen participation.
UT THAT’S NOT ALL! The University-Westside Unit has invited Culver City’s LWV to join them at their locally-organized March meeting, as follows from Nancy Arnheim:
Westside League of Women Voters Meeting,
Palms/Rancho Library, 9:30 am – noon, March 14, 2013
2920 Overland Avenue Los Angeles, 90064 (park and enter in rear)**
**the 9:30 time is the coffee/social get-together, but the library proper doesn’t open till 10. Their back entrance will be opened for you. It goes directly to an elevator, making it really easy to get to the second floor community room. Please RSVP to [email protected] if you plan to attend on 3/14.
