State LWV president plan visits to Alpena

Anyone interested in knowing more about the League of Women Voters is invited to the LWV noon lunch meeting on September 2. Following lunch, Sue Smith, president of the League of Women Voters of Michigan, will give an update on state LWV activities and discuss November ballot issues.

Additionally, there will be reports on local LWV future plans. Two of the local updates will be the October Candidates Forum and the November meeting on charter schools. Membership chair Kay Ogger encourages anyone interested to meet with LWV members at noon on Tuesday, September 2, at Vice President Nancy Hammond’s house, 155 Gilchrist Avenue, behind the Presbyterian Church near the corner of Long Rapids Road and Chisholm/US23N.

The League of Women Voters is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization that neither supports nor opposes candidates or political parties. It does, however, take action on issues that members have studied. For more information, check the website
