Comal LWV Honored at Convention
League of Women Voters-Comal Area (LWVCA) President Roxanna Deane describes the league’s collaboration with community groups in Comal County as its signature achievement over the last year.
Speaking at the League of Women Voters of Texas state convention in Kerrville April 27-29, she said Comal Area worked closely with Comal ISD to register 18-year-olds to vote, and with environmental groups trying to address issues created by Comal County’s rapid growth.
The Comal Area chapter was recognized at the state convention for “increasing membership and an outstanding land-use study.”
In addition to signing up high school seniors, LWVCA co-sponsored meetings with the Greater Edwards Aquifer Alliance and Hill Country Alliance to form the Comal County Preservation Alliance, which will address land-use issues in Comal County.
Deane also is director of Tye Preston Memorial Library.
The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
