March General Membership Meeting

The Fort Worth League of Neighborhood Associations held its March General Membership Meeting on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at University Christian Church. The intent of this meeting was to learn more about getting ready for the upcoming election of city leaders on May 6, 2017.

Our guest speaker was Jeane Grisham from the League of Women Voters of Tarrant County. Her topic was about practical planning to increase neighborhood awareness of local elections. She told us about herself and her passion for electorate education and about the League of Women Voters and its history. She covered voter registration, voter education, and sponsoring a candidate forum, and about resources available from the League of Women Voters. She concluded with a list of important election-related dates between now and May 6.

Jeane answered quite a few questions from the group. She was a delightful speaker. The League of Neighborhoods is grateful to Jeane, and to Sharon Austry for the St. Patrick’s Day themed table settings and Melissa Hunter for the cookies.

The candidates that have filed for the May 6 election are listed on the City’s website. More information about and from the LWV of Tarrant County can be found on their website.
