From Dendra Best
Manistee County League of Women Voters
The next meeting of the newly formed Manistee County League of Women
Voters will be held at 7pm at the Farr Center, Main Street, Onekama on
Monday June 5, 2006 . The League wishes to acknowledge with gratitude the
generous gesture of the Village of Onekama who waved the customary fee
for the use of the Farr Center.
With August primary elections plus local millage and proposals on the
ballot, as well as new voting machines to get used to - there will be
much to discuss with this month's Guest Speaker - Manistee County Clerk
State level proposals and important filing dates may be viewed via a
link from the Manistee League's web site at www.lwvmanisteecounty.org.
An alternative date will be set for July as the customary First Monday
conflicts with the Holiday - but the location will be in Copemish in
keeping with LWV's intent to visit each Manistee County Community and
promote citizen involvement in local government and governance.
August's meeting is slated for the Wellston area, September for Kaleva
(again on an alternate date). October will see a full slate of
preparedness and forums for the November elections.
