I am pleased to report that most of our reporters have agreed to continue writing for Report from State Circle (RSC). However, we have vacancies on the subjects of Election Process, Government Transparency, and Gun Control. Election Process and Transparency are particularly important to our Making Democracy Work priority.

The role requires scanning the list of bills introduced on the General Assembly website frequently - sometimes daily if you have a hot topic and want to alert LWVMD membership to act fast – and summarizing those in your subject area for the public to track and easily understand. As a reporter, you will also work to alert LWVMD leadership to bills they may want to take action on if it aligns with, or diverges from LWVMD positions. If you’re available to go to Annapolis, you may even have the opportunity to personally testify in support or opposition of these bills.

If you have some expertise or interest in the areas of Election Process, Government Transparency, and Gun Control, or know good candidates, please contact [email protected].

We join the rest of the League in mourning the passing of Judith Heimann who so ably edited the RSC for many years. However, we are delighted that Ruth Crystal has agreed to be our new editor.

LWVMD 2nd Vice President
