Recently, I had the privilege of finding out more about the LWV Northfield-Cannon Falls president for 2015-16. I’m sure you will also enjoy getting to know Mary Hahn better.
We got a great start on dues collection at the annual meeting! If you weren’t able to attend the meeting, we’re hoping you’ll take a moment to send your dues to our treasurer, Paul Zorn (209 Manitou Street; Northfield).
Pauline Nixon moved to Northfield only in March, but by April she had been snatched up by the board of League of Women Voters Northfield-Cannon Falls. No wonder, as she has a long history of LWV involvement. And she has years of experience lobbying the state legislature about important issues, like same-sex marriage and mental health services. She also worked on the path-breaking campaigns of Minnesota state senator Foung Hawj (DFL, District 67) and Minneapolis councilman Blong Yang (DFL).
The topic for our fall LWV Northfield-Cannon Falls Kick-Off is restoring the voting rights of felons. Two fabulous speakers have both confirmed their participation for the Oct 3 event. Sarah Walker (a Carleton alum who is the founder and chair of the Minnesota Second Chance Coalition) and Minnesota Secretary of State Steve Simon will both be speaking.
