Dear Members and Friends of the LWV of the Oneonta Area,
The outcome of the 2016 elections are known, even though the final votes are still being counted. As noted by Chris Carson, LWV’s National President, at least three things seem clear:
- The outcome of this historic election will result in serious challenges to the foundation of our modern democracy.
- The rights of Americans to fully participate in our democracy will face renewed threats.
- We must prepare and mobilize to counter efforts to misinform and disenfranchise voters.
Defending the rights so many have fought and sacrificed for will be hard work.
We look forward to hitting the ground running in the coming year, and expanding our efforts to improve the operation of our government, at all levels, for all people. We’ll need your help.
Please consider joining us for our annual planning meeting: 2 - 4 pm Saturday, January 21 at 31 Maple Street, Oneonta (The Frances Rowe House). We are inviting representatives of other Oneonta agencies to attend as well. For more information, call Alice (607-432-1238) or Steve at (607-432-3291.
