For the first time, Fillmore County will have a League of Women Voters. This is a nonpartisan, grassroots organization dedicated to educate and advocate for good public policy.
A kickoff event will be held Tuesday, November 14, 2017, 7-8 p.m. at the Preston F&M Bank Community Room. Socializing with light snacks will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Terry Kahlil, President of League of Women Voters Minnesota, will speak to the history and activities of the organization. Since 1920, the nonpartisan League has encouraged informed participation in government. The League does not support or oppose any political party or candidates for public office.
The League of Women Voters welcomes all who are 16 years of age and older. Together, people can learn and encourage civil civic dialogue around issues which affect us all.
