The League of Women Voters of Washington County is distributing the newest edition of its popular free print publication, Facts for Citizens. The brochures are available in municipal offices, public libraries, and the Washington County Department of Elections. The information is also available on the League’s website at washingcountypalwv.org.
For many years the League has published Facts for Citizens to encourage informed and active participation in government. While the internet makes finding details about some levels of government easier now than it was in the past, current local government information can still be difficult to track down, especially for some of the county’s smaller municipalities.
Facts for Citizens 2017 provides meeting times and contact information (addresses, phone and fax numbers, and email and web addresses when available) for the county’s 66 municipalities and 14 school districts as well as contact information for county, state and federal officials. Elected board members and term expiration dates are included.The conveniently-sized brochures are published in ten different regional editions, each with a contiguous group of municipalities and the school districts that serve them. County residents should look for the edition that covers their municipality and school district.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan, political organization which encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy. Membership is open to men and women. Local League activities are carried out entirely by volunteers. The Facts for Citizens publications are funded by the League of Women Voters Education Fund, the Observer Publishing Company, and Masters Ink.
