Following the information session, League members will remain for a consensus meeting in order to discuss and weigh in on the proposed bond. There will be an opportunity to renew membership or join the League at that time. Information on League membership is available on the League website.

The League of Women Voters of Scarsdale is a volunteer nonpartisan political organization that promotes political responsibility through informed and active participation of citizens in government. The League is nonpartisan in that it does not support or oppose any political party or candidate for public office, but the League encourages its members, as individuals, to take part fully in the political process. The League is political in that it takes positions on selected governmental issues after member study and consensus.

Contributed by Mary Beth Evans, Chair of the League of Women Voters of Scarsdale's School Bond Study Committee.
