Many thanks to reporter Bill Dwyer and Wednesday Journal for the article published in the Feb. 14 issue [The ‘eyes and ears’ of the voters, News] that spotlighted the League of Women Voters of Oak Park & River Forest and, in particular, its wonderful Observer Corps, including long-time Triton Board observer, Winx Pozorski.
While members of the league automatically receive the monthly League Bulletin, which publishes the reports of the observers, you need not be a member to access these reports. Anyone can view the reports on the league website: lwvoprf.lwvil.org. Or, non-members can receive the paper copy of the bulletin by subscribing for $10 a year. Simply contact the league at either 708/802-0697 or at email@example.com.
In April, citizens have the responsibility to vote for members of the local government boards. To assist voters, the league will be hosting two candidate fairs. Residents can meet candidates for the Triton board, the River Forest Park District Board, and the Oak Park and River Forest High School board at Lincoln School in River Forest on the evening of April 11, from 7 to 9 p.m. Candidates for the Oak Park village board, the Oak Park library board, the Oak Park and River Forest High School board, and the Triton board will be invited to Oak Park and River Forest High School on Saturday, April 14, from 2 to 4 p.m. Mark your calendars.
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
