Making Democracy Work

Make Democracy Work!

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages the informed and active participation of citizens in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

LWV ABC members are also members of LWV Minnesota and LWV United States.

Our Drafts and Discourse series will pick up again at 6 p.m. on November 21 at Torg Brewery, 8421 University Avenue in Spring Lake Park. Non-alcoholic beverages are available. Food may be brought into the brewery.

Yes, this is the day before Thanksgiving this month - a good chance to unwind and talk policy and public events before meeting up with your relatives for dinner Thursday!

Connexus Logo The LWV ABC Lively Issues discussion at the monthly program on December 10 will provide information about Connexus Energy (CE), a member-owned electric cooperative. CE is Minnesota's largest member-owned electric company and serves more than 130,000 members in portions of Anoka, Chisago, Hennepin, Isanti, Ramsey, Sherburne, and Washington counties.

Former state legislator Kathy Tingelstad, a long-time LWV ABC member and a former challenger candidate for the Connexus Energy Board, will lead a discussion that will cover how the governing board is elected, if the board is transparent in its activities, and whether the board uses best practices in its governance.

The public is invited to the free monthly meeting. Location: Andover Senior Center, at the north end of Andover City Hall, 1685 Crosstown Blvd NW, Andover

Time: 6:00 social and light supper provided by our scheduled volunteers / 6:30 Announcements and program
