WLA looks toward achieving some ambitious legislative goals over the next few years, and it has to start now. It's all about building relationships with your legislators.
"Many people think politics is all money. In reality relationships and constituent activity are the true drivers of legislative change. Fortunately, relationship building is what libraries do best - at Legislative Day and all year 'round."
Steven Conway, Government Relations Advisor WLA
FEBRUARY 21 ABSENTEE VOTING STRONGLY ENCOURAGED FOR LIBRARY LEGISLATIVE DAY ATTENDEES!
Remember that February 21 is also Spring Election Primary Day and the only statewide race is for an office that is very important to libraries: Superintendent of Public Instruction (DPI). LD&L will be gathering relevant statements from the three SSOPI candidates to share with the membership as soon as possible. Ballotpedia SSOPI race summary here.
If you’re attending Library Legislative Day and cannot return to your polling place before 8 PM on Election Day, you can either do In-Person (early) voting during the two weeks prior to the election, ending at 5 PM on Friday, February 17 OR request an absentee ballot from your municipal clerk by 5 PM on Thursday, February 16.
