Hear about issues that affect you.  Talk with invited representatives from the Laramie City and the Albany County traffic commissions; Project Main Street, UW Transportation and Parking, Laramie Airport Board, WYDOT and other groups with a stake in how transportation and traffic planning is accomplished in Albany County.  This meeting is a chance to find out what is being done about improving traffic flow around Laramie, what priorities are, and who represents the citizens as these decisions are made. If you have questions or concerns, this is a great opportunity to let your elected and appointed civic leaders know about them. Written questions will be used for the first part of the forum, the second half will allow time for one-on-one interactions with the audience and other panel members.

The LWV encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.  Neither the Library nor the LWV ever support or oppose candidates or political parties.

 

Terri Rittenburg, Amy Williamson, Susan Simpson and Judy Knight represented League at the ceremony to celebrate the 147th anniversary of the first woman voting on an equal basis with men, at the Women's History House in Laramie.  The program was put on by the Louisa Swain Foundation, which owns and operates the house with the help of docents from the Laramie Plains Museum.

 

There will also be a much bigger ceremony in the year 2020, which will commemorate not only the 150th anniversary of Louisa Gardiner Swain's historic vote, but also the 100th anniversary of universal suffrage for women in the United States, with the ratification by the 36th state of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.
