Candidates respond to our question: What are the three most important tasks to be accomplished by this first Town Council during its three-year term to ensure that the new town government gets off to a strong start?
Notes from Working the Amherst Housing Puzzle: A Community Problem Solving Forum, October 25, 2017. This forum was co-sponsored by the Amherst League of Women Voters, the Amherst Municipal Affordable Housing Trust, the Unitarian-Universalist Society of Amherst, and the Valley Community Development Corporation.
The League of Women Voters has played a key role in influencing national, state, and local government policy since the League’s founding in 1920.
Here in Massachusetts, the state League advocates for our legislative priorities on Beacon Hill. As a grassroots organization, we depend on our members to act as citizen lobbyists to make our voice heard on important issues of public policy.
