Program Planning Outcomes 2020
The League of Women Voters Los Altos-Mountain View held its all-member Program Planning meeting on Saturday, February 1st at the home of Katie Campodonico. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss and recommend the issues we wish the LWVUS will prioritize over the next two years and the issues we wish to prioritize locally in the coming year.
Issues recommended to the LWVUS under the framework and campaign “Making Democracy Work” were Redistricting, Voting Rights, Improving Elections, and Campaign Finance/Money in Politics. We added Climate Change and support for LWV Illinois’ request for abolition of the electoral college for action focus.
Updates were given on the following local League activities.
1. Housing – Donna Yobs
2. Education – Ellen Wheeler
3. Natural Resources - Climate Change Team – Gary Hedden
4. Voter Services – Karin Bricker
5. Los Altos Community Coalition – Cathy Lazarus
Voter Services, Housing, and Climate Change were chosen as the local priorities for 2020-2021. These will be recommended to the League members at the Annual Meeting for confirmation.
