League of Women Voters of Nevada 2015 Convention Update
The League of Women Voters Of Nevada met June 13th in Las Vegas for our biennial Convention. We elected a new state board, honored two legislators, and discussed plans for the next two years.
Our new League of Women Voters of Nevada State Board is:
President: Janice Browne
1st Vice President: Sondra Cosgrove
2nd Vice President: Beverly Abderrahman
Secretary: Jean Laird
Treasurer: Ann Marie Smith
We discussed the need to recognize political leaders who promote and practice good governance and possibly hosting a Good Governance event after each legislative session to celebrate political leaders who prioritize the greater good. At the meeting we recognized Chair of the Assembly Taxation Committee, Assemblyman Derek Armstrong, and Assembly Minority Leader, Assemblywoman Marilyn Kirkpatrick, for their efforts this session.
We will be sending letters of recognition to the many other legislators who ensured that Nevada is an exception, not the rule, this year.
The State Board will be meeting over the summer for a strategy session to prioritize issues and align our budget with our priorities. We are already looking toward the upcoming 2016 election and the 2017 legislative session and hope all Nevadans will take this opportunity to register to vote at: www.Vote411.org
