New President Marjorie Johnson issued the following message for members...
"Hello! I am Marj Johnson, your new president of the New Castle County League of Women Voters. While I have a lot to learn, it is a privilege to serve you. Thank you to all of you who volunteered to be on our Board: Patti Christopher, Carmela Longobardi, Katharine Olinchak, Sarah Bucic, Joann Hasse, Lorraine S. Botticelli, Moonyeen (Kloppy) Klopfenstein, Barbara Mobarak, Bea Webb, Fay Whittle.
It is an extraordinary board with new and "seasoned" talent, new perspectives and new energy, and I look forward to working with them. I also look forward to getting to know many more of our membership and I am hoping you will find new ways of becoming involved in whatever area speaks to your passions.
At our annual meeting, the membership in attendance developed several areas they would like to see addressed in the coming year. Perhaps some of them will speak to you."

"As you can see, we have a lot facing us in the coming year. We can use all the help we can get to address the above issues, in addition to the ongoing areas that the League is invested in. So, please volunteer, share your thoughts, create ideas, and broadcast all that the League does to your friends and those you meet wherever you are."
