LWVMC -September Meeting
The Mason County League of Women Voters will hold the first meeting of the 2014 - 2015 year, Tuesday, September 16, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm in the library at Olympic College. An important element toward building a healthy community, is civic engagement. This means reconciling citizen activism and government responsiveness within the context of an anti-government era. "We the people" is the new rallying cry of both the right and the left. The pervasiveness of special interests, outside money, and hidden agendas. has elicited a cautionary attitude, if not outright mistrust of elected officials.
Our speaker, Cheryl Simrell King, PhD is a member of the faculty in the Master of Public Administration Program at Evergreen State College in Olympia. She will discuss the dilemma of citizen participation in this anti-government era, with an emphasis on engaging young people as they attempt to establish their place in the community.
Please remember, we collect annual dues in September.
