The purpose of the Observer Corps is two-fold: 
to observe public meetings and report important issues to the LWV to be seen by elected officials because “We matter and we are watching you.”
So many decisions that impact our day-to-day lives are made at the local level. And while the newspaper reports the highlights, and the TV news reports on these stories (if they have interesting video to show), some of us need more! If you like going to public meetings, consider joining our group. We are the “boots on the ground.” We go to public meetings and then discuss what we saw. It is so interesting to compare notes - and this month’s meeting was very interesting. A comparison was made of Legislative Wrap-Up reports by a couple of representatives, and the differences were comical. Join us for our next meeting, May 24th, 1:00pm at the Compass Center in Lake Worth.
