Dear Friend of Hopewell Valley League
During this past year, the Hopewell Valley League of Women Voters has been actively engaging the residents of our area to support participation of citizens in our government. This fall, we made a special effort to inform people about the opportunity to Vote by Mail, hoping to boost voter participation in future elections. And, of course, we registered voters, updated our voter education materials, and distributed cards containing key information about the General Election.
Last month we hosted a Candidates Forum for the 2 residents who were running for a seat on the Hopewell Township Committee. We continue to work on the format for our Candidates Forum, seeking to make it as fresh and informative as possible. Suggestions for improvements in the forum and development of questions are always welcome.
In late winter or early spring we are planning another installment in our series of programs on issues that seem to be on everyone’s mind, providing background information that will help the electorate to participate in civic discussions in a knowledgeable way. We are currently searching for a speaker to provide a Development 101 presentation that will help us all to be informed on issues related to new developments and the process that is followed. Program details will be available early in 2016.
We continue to expand our on-line presence with our own e-mail address (HVLeague@gmail.com) and our own website domain name (HopewellValleyLWV.org) so that we can more easily communicate with our neighbors in the Valley.
These programs, which we are privileged to sponsor for our community, need financial support as well as the time and energy of our members. Won’t you please assist us? We value the support of friends such as you, who help to make Hopewell Valley such a wonderful place to live.
