Monthly newsletter for members of the League of Women Voters Northfield - Cannon Falls
June / July, 2014 (July 8, 2014)
Dear LWV members,
It’s the first week of July but the LWV-Northfield/Cannon Falls is busy planning for an exciting year! We held a mini board retreat on Saturday, June 28th, to get more acquainted as a board (there are four new members) and to start fleshing out details for 2014-2015 programming. It’s great to have some returning members on the board and some new faces.
Our successful grant application to the State League to support our Voter Service efforts will enable us to get our fall off to a great start! In addition to the funding to support candidate forum expenses, we are delighted to announce that we will be able to order a large number of VOTE TODAY signs to be placed in yards across the Northfield and Cannon Falls communities on Election Day. Perhaps you recall seeing a photo from the Edina League of such a sign in one of last year’s eCatalysts. We are pleased to be able to provide this kind of bold visual reminder to voters in our communities.
Mark your calendars now for Northfield’s Primary Election Candidate Forum taking place in Council Chambers at City Hall on Wednesday, July 30th at 6:00 pm. The forum will begin with the candidates for the At-large seat at 6:00 pm, followed by the candidates for the Ward 1 seat at 7:00 pm.
In a recent conversation with City Clerk, Deb Little, it was learned that Northfield is in need of Election Judges for the upcoming primary and general elections.
Serving as an Election Judge provides our members with a unique and important opportunity to serve our community through the promotion and support of fair and well-run elections.
New to the League? Or are you a long time League member ready to become more active?
There is much important work for our local League to do and the Board is hoping to engage a significant number of members on Committees in the coming year. The more the merrier and the lighter the load for each of us!
