LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS HOLDS ELECTIONS

New officers were elected to League of Women Voter's board of directors on Saturday, April 18. Erva A. Denham was elected to serve as the board president, with Rhea Dowling serving as first vice-president, Corine Kropp as secretary and Debra Brown-Roumo, the outgoing league president, standing in for a one-year term as second vice-president.
The election took place at the league's annual meeting, held at the Emerald Beach Hotel.
V.I. Inspector General Steven van Beverhoudt was the keynote speaker for the luncheon meeting.
Along with officers, the membership also elected seven new directors to the board and five members to the nominating committee.
The league recently celebrated its thirty-year anniversary.
In the organization's 30 years in the territory the league has had a significant impact on the lives of the people of the Virgin Islands. The LWV has, among many other things, actively encouraged participation in the voting process, analyzed the territory's budget, cosponsored the "Meet the Candidates" television forum every election year, filed the "Save the Long Bay" lawsuit and lobbied nationally for the right to vote, in committee, for the Delegate to Congress.
The league encourages membership and active participation by the community. Men are welcome to join.
The league holds monthly luncheon meetings — the second Monday of the month — presenting speakers of interest and importance to the community. The public is encouraged to come out and support the monthly meetings.
