Inequality Action Committee
JAN PENN & LINDA JORGENSON, Chairs
Current work for this committee in 2018-2019 is to join the statewide End Child Poverty Campaign. Since the campaign is raising many of the same issues of wage stagnation, and unsustainable health care, housing and childcare costs, and government de-investment that were raised by the LWV/ABC 2017 Inequality Study, Jan and Linda asked if the Committee would like to merge the Health Equity and Living Wage Committees and tackle our issues under the umbrella of this campaign. The consensus of the group was that we should do that.

Voter Services/Candidate Forum Committee
MARY HASSETT GABRYS, Chair
We believe that every eligible voter should have a fair and equal opportunity to vote and cast their ballot. LWV/ABC Voter Services volunteers each year engage voters and voters-to-be with voter registration materials. The Voter Services Committee helps voters get to know the candidates and issues in upcoming elections, primarily by holding forums for candidates for our area's state and local offices. At the forums, all questions come from the audience, so attendees can hear the candidates address issues of interest to them.
