“In order to function well, democracy requires well-informed, voting citizens. That means that each citizen, ideally, will know and assess issues of public policy on every level of government. I’m not, by myself, capable of obtaining and disseminating accurate information in the many areas which concern me; with the League of Women Voters, I can.”
