Speakers Bureau Ballot Propositions

The League of Women Voters will provide a program on the Pros and Cons of each of the ballot measures for the upcoming November 8, 2016 General Election. Our Speakers Bureau is unbiased and will present opposing views on the ballot issues. The presentation will require a minimum of 40 minutes as we will review the background and financing of each measure. There are 17 Ballot Measures to cover. You may also select certain ones instead of in depth on all the ballot issues. We will take requests beginning 5 weeks before the election. To reserve a program for your organization, call 559-734-6501 or email to rzeeb@comcast.net
