LWV Philly Presents: The Importance of Municipal Elections
September 19, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Municipal elections play a pivotal role in shaping the very foundation of our communities. From local policies to public services, these elections directly impact our day-to-day lives. As such, it’s crucial for us to understand the significance of these elections and actively participate in shaping the future of our municipalities. This panel will bring together a distinguished group of community leaders – including Lauren Cristella, President & CEO of the Committee of Seventy, Philadelphia Commissioner Chair Lisa Deeley, and Debbie Gross, President & CEO of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts – to discuss the power of community, involvement, strategies to encourage civic engagement, and the influence of municipal policies on broader regional and national issues.
