Happy Holidays from LWVN!

The LWVN Board wishes all our members a happy and healthy holiday season!

We look forward to 2018 and are busy planning a number of meetings on hot topics including gerrymandering, sexual harassment, and the continuing Newton city charter debate.

Make a New Year’s resolution to spend a few hours a month with LWVN and we promise they will be well-spent!

Poll Workers’ Thank You Party this Thursday!

Did you know that there were over 300 people working at the polls between the preliminary and general election, as well as the recent recount?  LWVN will be thanking our poll workers with a celebration on Thursday, December 14th at City Hall, starting at 6 pm. 

We need volunteers to welcome and thank the many poll workers at the event.  If you can help or if you plan to attend as an LWVN representative, please contact info@lwvnewton.org.

Watch “The League Presents…” to meet new elected officials

The new episode of “The League Presents…” features an interview with newly elected officials Josh Krintzman (Ward 4 At-Large Councilor), Becky Walker Grossman (Ward 7 At-Large Councilor), and Kathy Shields (Ward 7 School Committee).  Our guests were in uncontested races, so we wanted to be sure you knew about them personally, as well as their priorities and thoughts on important issues in Newton.  Marcia Johnson and Sue Flicop co-moderated, and Maureen Reilly Meagher produced and directed the program.  Click here to watch:  “The League Presents…Post Election”
