Guns on Campus? This is an issue LWVVC is following closely. See LWVF's notice of action posted 1/31/16.
Money in Politics: The League of Women Voters of Volusia County did a study of the role of money in politics as part of their larger studies of campaign finance. The committee, chaired by LWVVC Board member Carla Christianson, studied many documents, organized their findings and presented them in several meetings around the county. On January 9th, the LWVVC membership met to discuss the findings and come to a consensus on the many questions posed by the national LWV. Approximately forty LWVVC members met for spirited discussions on the questions posed. Christianson compiled responses from each of four tables at the meeting, and that "Money In Politics Consensus" Report is available here. This consensus report was forwarded to LWV to be included for the final national consensus on how LWV should focus its efforts. Other documents available for members are
the text of Carla's presentation at the December 1st Hot Topics meeting on the issue.
Elections: The local elections in Holly Hill and Lake Helen are now over. While it seems early to be thinking about the 2016 national elections, the primary races are already in full swing. The Republicans have already held three presidential primary debates (a fourth will be November 10th), and a number more are scheduled between now and mid-March 2016. The Democrats have held one debate out of six scheduled. We urge everyone to watch both series of debates to learn more about these candidates seeking their party's nomination. For information on the primary debate schedules, see:
