The 43 members at the June 1st League of Women Voters Los Altos Mountain View annual business meeting elected a new board, approved a conditional change in tax status to 501c(3) –tax exempt donations– and heard Joe Simitian, two-term state Senator and our current Santa Clara County Board Supervisor, talk about Civility in Politics.
Our League of Women Voters Los Altos Mountain View chapter recommended the following for education and advocacy at the state level. (No studies were recommended.)
1. Continue working on core issues such as health care, redistricting, initiative and referendum (all)
2. Promote school safety using LWVC’s position on gun control (Dorothea Grimes-Farrow, Steve Chessin)
3. Explore public funding for early childhood education (Ellen Wheeler)
