2014 Federal, State and County Elections
Additional Kerr County Candidates Forums are planned for April 2014 following the March Primary Election.
The League of Women Voters-Kerrville Area sponsored two Candidate Forums February 3 and February 10 for candidates running for Kerr County offices in the March 4 Primary Elections. Attendance at both Forums was standing room only with audience members presenting questions on a wide variety of community topics for the Forum Candidates.
2013 STUDY ISSUES
All local Leagues of Texas have completed Consensus of a study of the issues of Human Trafficking. The Study Guide "Facts and Issues: Human Trafficking in Texas" plus additional references and resources have been released to the leagues and posted on the Issue Studies page of the LWV-TX website http://www.lwvtexas.org/issues.php.
The League is a grassroots organization. Therefore, issues are studied on the local level. Local Leagues come to consensus on questions posed; then the state League forms positions from which to advocate for legislation.
2014 STUDY ISSUES
All US Leagues have been invited to initiate a study of the issues of Genetically Modified Foods and Crops. The League of Women Voters - Kerrville Area is currently evaluating this topic for a possible study with consensus to be reached by April 30, 2014. League members wishing to share concerns or having input regarding this study topic should contact League member, Rhonda Wiley-Jones.
