In my last column as PV League president, I want to repeat my
comments from our Local Convention on June 8. But first I want to
congratulate our new co-presidents, Vi Iungerich and Jo-Anne Waller.
They will provide excellent leadership and will need your support in
moving forward with our League program and goals.
It has been a pleasure to serve as president of the Palos Verdes League
for the past 4 years. I joined the League in the early ‘70s and have
served in several capacities. Being president has been a fulfilling
The PV League board members are amazing and very dedicated. They
have worked to fulfill the mission of the League - tracking land use,
providing information for voters, conducting studies that come from the
national, state, and county Leagues. They have supported our new
outreach program, “Coffee and Conversation with the League,” leading
the discussions of issues of interest. Our League has been well-served
by these outstanding women.
On the broader front, LWVUS is working to protect voting rights,
including voter registration procedures; it is promoting clean air
measures; and is addressing the influence of money in elections and
seeking full disclosure.
LWVC is addressing state budget issues; working to provide information
on the implementation of the new health care program; and working on
voter service materials for each election.
Whether it is on the local, state, or national level, there is much for the
League to do and the work is significant. We in PV are a smaller group
than in years past, but we are a group dedicated to upholding citizen’s
rights and promoting the common good, and I am proud to be a member.
Thank you all for a great experience.
