People Powered Day of Action

People Powered Day of Action

Join us and take action to
ensure that fair redistricting
is a nationwide priority.

Mark your calendars! On April 29, 2021, the League of Women Voters will host events around  
the country to increase public awareness and engagement around the redistricting process,
and make sure the public's voice is heard.

Why is Redistricting important?

New district lines can be drawn to intentionally decrease voters' power based solely on
their political party. We believe redistricting should be fair and transparent. Our program,
People Powered Fair Maps™ advocates for redistricting processes that eliminate partisan
and racial gerrymandering
 nationwide.

County Commissioners to Offer Updates at League of Women Voters April Meeting

A 5:30 p.m. start time for the Chaffee County League of Women Voters April 12th meeting will allow more working county residents to participate in a Zoom “Happy Hour” with the three County Commissioners.  

Commissioners Keith Baker (District 1), Greg Felt (District 2) and Rusty Granzella (District 3) will first present updates regarding their specific areas of responsibility followed by questions submitted in advance and through the Zoom chat function. 

Each Commissioner has specific areas of responsibility and their reports will touch on numerous issues of importance to county residents.  Topics could include workforce development, transportation planning and public lands (Commissioner Baker); Covid-19 response, forest use and health and next steps for the county government (Commissioner Felt); and economic development, fair and fairgrounds and the airports (Commissioner Granzella).   

The Commissioners encourage discussion on these and other topics.  However, Commissioner Felt advises “Topics that cannot be discussed are fact-specific cases in which commissioners will be asked to render a quasi-judicial decision. These are situations where we have to protect due process for all participants, e.g. land use applications like subdivisions, special event applications, liquor or marijuana licenses, etc. And we can’t speculate about law enforcement investigations, nor can we comment on ongoing litigation.”  He also encourages residents to participate in the Commission’s monthly meetings via Zoom from the county's website at chaffeecounty.org
