Your League of Women Voters - Kerrville Area has a solid reputation in our community for our candidate and issue forums, voter registration, and public programs on major issues.  In 2014 we will carry on our efforts in each of these areas.  See the 'Events Calendar' and the 'The Voter Newsletter' in the left margin for the latest League of Women Voters' current happenings.  Plan to attend our "What's New With the League of Women Voters - Kerrville Area"  evening meetings in Bella Vita's private dining room.  Meetings are listed on our Events Calendar and on our Facebook page.

2014 Federal, State and County Elections
Additional  Kerr County Candidates Forums are planned for April, May and June 2014 following the March Primary Election.  Please check out the Events page!

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.

Please check out our Women's Talent Bank. We have several women ready to serve on city or county advisory boards, etc.  See more information under Women's Talent Bank.  Questions? Please contact Meg Scott Johnson.

WHAT WE BELIEVE 

The League of Women Voters believes:
  • in representative government and in the individual liberties established in the Constitution of the United States
  • that democratic government depends upon the informed and active participation of its citizens and requires that governmental bodies protect the citizen's right to know by giving adequate notice of proposed actions, holding open meetings, and making public records accessible.
  • that every citizen should be protected in the right to vote; that every person should have access to free public education that provides equal opportunity for all; and that no person or group should suffer legal, economic, or administrative discrimination.
  • that efficient and economical government requires competent personnel, the clear assignment of responsibility, adequate financing, and coordination among the different agencies and levels of government.   
  • that responsible government should be responsive to the will of the people; that government should maintain an equitable and flexible system of taxation, promote the conservation and development of natural resources in the public interest, share in the solution of economic and social problems that affect the general welfare, promote a sound economy, and adopt domestic policies that facilitate the solution of international problems.
  • that cooperation with other nations is essential in the search for solutions to world problems, and that the development of international organization and international law is imperative in the promotion of world peace.
