President's Message 


Cruise shotElection Year--Where the Rubber Meets the Road


Wow.  All I can says is,  no matter how one feels about the outcome, the fall election brought tremendous challenges and  success for our League's work of voter education.  With the number of candidates, offices, referenda and amendments, never has our work been more important, or more appreciated.  See the Voter Services report for more details. 


Special thanks go to our board and other members who helped with our voter registration drives, Hot Topics, public events, and more; and especially to Lorraine Berry, who took up the daunting role of Treasurer after our former treasurer, Valerie Fisher, retired after many dedicated years.


We also saw a significant membership increase this fall, another welcome sign of appreciation from our community.  With the election behind us, we can concentrate now on public education, improving government and helping to resolve issues to make us a strong, vibrant county with citizens actively engaged in making it a better place to live.  


We hope to see our members and guests at our Annual Membership Meeting at the Bradenton Country Club on Saturday, April 22.  Please circle that date.  More information about the luncheon and speaker will be forthcoming.


In League,


Rosalie Shaffer
