Hey City – We are the League of Women Voters’ new Observer Corps

Wednesday, March 28, 2018 we made a visit to City Hall – the Mayor’s and the Councilmembers’ offices to introduce the newly revitalized Observer Corps. Annalee Allen gave us a guided tour of the Mayor’s West Wing and the labyrinthine maze that makes up the offices of our councilmembers and their staffs.
