NJ Government & Politics: What You Want & Need to Know

February 17 @ 7:00 pm

Hosted by the League of Women Voters of Lawrence Township, guest speaker is Ingrid Reed, a noted leader in promoting fairness and transparency in New Jersey politics

Wednesday, February 17 at 7 PM via Zoom. The program is free and all are welcome!

Are you concerned about public issues in New Jersey? Fair elections, safe water, affordable housing, school taxes, police funding, rules for the sale of cannabis? Have you ever considered running for public office?

Through a lifetime of civic activity, Ingrid Reed has perfected methods of civic participation that she will share with us. She will talk about how to address public issues in a manner that can get results. Ingrid Reed is currently Chair of the NJTV Community Advisory Board and a former director of the New Jersey Project at Rutgers’ Eagleton Institute of Politics.

The program is free. Please CLICK HERE to Pre-register.

In the Q&A portion of the program, Ingrid Reed will respond to your questions. Please go to LWVofLawrence@gmail.com and submit questions by February 7, 2021.
