League of Women Voters of Larimer County Looks to the Future At Its Annual Meeting

The League of Women Voters of Larimer County (LWVLC) marked another year of service to Larimer County residents and celebrated the 90th year of the national League of Women Voters. Known widely for their voter education efforts, this non-partisan civic group has been active in Larimer County for decades.

On Monday, May 10, the LWVLC met to elect members of its Administrative Team, welcomed new members and set its agenda for the coming year in its continuing efforts toward making democracy work.

A highlight of the annual meeting was the talk by Dr. Anthony Frank, President of Colorado State University, on “Budget Cuts and Higher Education.” He spoke of the difficulties faced by all public institutions of higher education. At CSU, he has worked tirelessly trying, in the face of draconian budget cuts, to maintain the mission of the University — quality education and accessibility to higher education for all Colorado residents. His remarks were followed by numerous questions from the floor, which he answered fully and openly.

Carol Rush, spokesperson for LWVLC, said, “We take seriously our legacy of providing trustworthy and balanced resources to citizens and lawmakers. From health care reform to sustainability issues to concerns regarding the homeless to matters dealing with campaign finance, the League of Women Voters of Larimer County is dedicated to helping the citizens of Larimer County better understand these vital issues.”

Membership in the League is open to men and women of all ages. For more information or to join, please contact Linda Mahan, 484-2259, Lmahan@alum.bu.edu.
