When you see a judicial candidate's name on the ballot, do you wonder how it got there? Join members of the League of Women Voters of Bedford, Lewisboro and North Salem on Thursday, March 7, as they host a coffee with Bedford Town Justice David Menken and Lewisboro Town Justice Susan Simon at the Katonah Library to gain some insight into the process. The event will run from 10 am until noon; it is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by local author and food historian Peter Rose.
In addition to Justices Menken and Simon, the League has invited a representative from the Board of Elections.
"We did something similar back in October but with a campaign finance reform theme," explains co-president Lisa Pizzurro. "Our March coffee will center around a discussion of how judicial candidates get on state and local ballots."
The League of Women Voters celebrated its 93rd birthday on February 14. "I am so proud to be a part of this organization," says co-president Katherine Dering. "For almost a century, the League has been educating and informing voters. Our events, such as this upcoming one on March 7, are our local chapter's contribution to that history and tradition."
"Our coffees are informal and informative," says Ms. Pizzurro. "They are a great way to 'try out' the League and to meet new people."
