Have you thought about what the Met Council does, and how its governance should be structured and be accountable to the people of the metropolitan region? LWV has a current position on the Met Council governance that will be reviewed and updated this winter. The Council of Metropolitan Leagues (CMAL) is just finishing up a study on Metropolitan Council governance that will be distributed to all metropolitan League members.
LWVSP will be holding a program planning meeting in early February to register consensus on the study. If you haven't participated in a consensus before, this will be a great time to learn about this key role of League. The outcome of the consensus that comes in from all leagues will re-frame our league position. Stay posted for emails or check our website for the date of the meeting and related information.
