We reached consensus on proposed changes to one of our positions! The Study Committee for Local Governance in San Jose worked hard to prepare written materials before a Consensus Meeting on April 24 and to present a summary of that material at the meeting. Let’s thank everyone who made such significant contributions to this important and challenging effort:
Co-Chairs Vicki Alexander and Virginia Holtz contributed their enthusiasm, leadership and experience.
Committee members Marie Arnold, Martha Beattie, Roma Dawson, Curtis Jones, Diane McNutt, Sandy Mory, Randall Studstill and Taryn Upchurch worked very well together, attending Zoom meetings at least every two weeks since October and spending countless hours between meetings on research and thoughtful consideration of issues and options.

The process to produce an updated position continues next month when we will ask our members to approve the new wording. This happens at our Annual Meeting of all members on Saturday, June 5. Other important items are on the agenda:
• Kickoff Speaker: We are pleased to host our own LWV California President Carol Moon Goldberg who will discuss how the levels of League can interact and work together.
• Approval of a budget for the upcoming year.
• Election of officers and directors.
Look for the Annual Meeting Kit in your email on or before May 16 which includes the agenda and background information on the votes we ask all members to REGISTER for this important meeting today!
