WHY I JOINED
I joined the League of Women Voters because I wanted to do my part in supporting our democracy here in my home community, across the state and in Washington, D.C. I selected the League as my organization of choice because of its nonpartisan stance, its long respected history and its active involvement in communities all across Texas.
JANIS RICHARDSON / CHAIR / LWV LAVACA COUNTY LEADERSHIP TEAM
I joined the League of Women Voters because I believe in democracy, government by the people and for the people. If we are to continue to be a democracy, we people have to have a safe space to talk about important issues without becoming adversarial. The League encourages examining all sides of an issue and asking all candidates vying to represent us to educate us.
BEVERLY CHARLES / LWV LAVACA COUNTY MEMBER
I joined the LWV as a way to honor those women and men who fought for our right to vote and to serve my community by encouraging and energizing citizens to participate in the democratic process.
V'ANNE HUSER / LWV LAVACA COUNTY LEADERSHIP TEAM
I believe an informed electorate makes better decisions. The League of Women Voters is passionate about educating voters on the issues and the candidates. More and more we voters are swayed by campaign ads and other one-sided communications. The League offers a place to learn about the issues and candidates so we can make decisions that benefit us and our communities.
