Hot Topics and Hot Soup Offered by Piedmont League of Women Voters

The League of Women Voters of Piedmont Focus on State and Local Issues at their Wednesday, January 21, meeting.

“Hot Topics and Hot Soup” are on the agenda of the Piedmont League of Women Voters on Wednesday, January 21, 2015.

The annual program will be held at 325 Ramona Ave., Piedmont, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., to decide where and how the League should focus state and local resources (member time, money and reputation) over the next two years. A soup and salad lunch will be provided by Piedmont League members. The meeting is free and open to the public.

Statewide League issues include campaign financing, air quality, water, energy use, transportation, juvenile justice, and more. Locally, the Piedmont League has positions on the City’s housing needs, planning process, open space, education and other issues. The League plans to study how the President of the Piedmont School Board is selected by the Board and how Piedmont’s Mayor is selected by the City Council.

Members will propose whether League positions should be retained, dropped or updated and determine which positions should be recommended for concerted study, education and action.
