Do you enjoy discussing water protection, energy options, campaign financing, women's equality, election processes, ethics, judicial justice and other public policy issues?
If you have answered yes to any of the above, I encourage you to visit the January Legislative Committee meeting. We will be setting the agenda for the next few months leading to April/May visits with elected officials from Huntington.
Prior to these visits we discuss the background education materials supplied by our state league organization and reports from our local league observers to the town board and county legislature. I believe you will enjoy being a participant of a team of 3-4 committee members having a conversation with your NY state representative.

On June 27, 2002, members of the LWV of Huntington voted to accept the position statement on affordable housing adopted by the LWV of Suffolk County.
In order to meet the current and future housing needs of all citizens regardless of economic circumstances, there should be a diversity of affordable housing opportunities and types (ownership and rentals and single and multiple dwellings).
Democracy is not a spectator sport and we in the LWV of Huntington are definitely not spectators. We do voter registration drives, sponsor candidate nights, engage students in programs at their schools, help register new citizens at naturalization ceremonies, visit our elected politicians, attend Huntington Town Board meetings, do programs on the environment, health care, government, etc.
If you wish to know more about us, call the LWV of Huntington at (631) 421-5164 or email our officers or attend any of our meetings including board meetings. All are welcome!
