LWV needs meeting observer volunteers

The Heights Chapter of the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Greater Cleveland has a shortage of observers to cover the University Heights City Council. Unfortunately, this shortage will prevent full coverage of all University Heights City Council meetings. If you appreciate these reports, perhaps you would like to help LWV continue this service to the community by volunteering for its Observer Corps. Observers of University Heights City Council do not have to be University Heights residents, but they must be impartial and unaffiliated with any of the council members’ or mayor’s campaigns. Observers do not participate in public comments unless authorized to do so by the League board.  

More volunteers to observe the Cleveland Heights-University Heights school and library boards and Cleveland Heights City Council are welcome as well. To learn more, contact Maryann Barnes (mbarnes9515@gmail.com or 216 321-7525). 

The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan and endorses no candidates, but does take positions on policy issues. It works to safeguard democracy, advocate for good government, educate voters and promote voter participation. For more information visit the Greater Cleveland LWV’s website at http://lwvgreatercleveland.org.

If you are not already a LWV member, please join. By joining LWV of Greater Cleveland you can also affiliate with the Heights Chapter. Membership information can be found at http://lwvgreatercleveland.org/join.
