How would you cut the state budget?
Submitted By Suzanne Barba, LWVEA
The League of Women Voters Eden Area will feature an interactive program on the state budget presented by Next 10, an independent, non-partisan organization known throughout the state for this unique program.
Those who attend the League's Annual Meeting on Saturday, June 16, 2012 at the Castro Valley Library will each use a hand-held electronic device to balance the state budget by indicating where to cut or add to one of many services such as schools, prisons, and health care.
The Annual Meeting starts at 11:00 a.m. with a business meeting at 11:15 a.m. At this time there will also be a presentation to Eleanor Parker on reaching her 50th year of League membership. Castro Valley Library is at 3600 Norbridge Avenue, Castro Valley.
There will be a lunch at noon and a power point presentation on "Why You Make a Difference" which motivates high school students to register and vote.
The Next 10 program, called the California Budget Challenge, begins at 12:30 p.m. and will be followed by a Q&A session at 1:30 p.m.
