February Civic Buzz
LWVMpls Black Forest Inn Discussion Meeting
Free and Open to the Public
Tuesday, February 7, 2017
Hazardous Freight/Rail Safety
What has the state done? What can the state do to address rail issues? What about Minneapolis?
Our speaker, Alene Tchourumoff, State Rail Director, is the point of contact for citizens worried about the potential for dangerous crashes from the oil trains rumbling through their communities. Previously she coordinated Freight Rail movement for Hennepin County, and prior was policy advisor on Rail Program Implementation at Deloitte Consulting.
The Civic Buzz meets the first Tuesday of each month
5:30 pm Gather and Networking
6:15 pm Speaker
6:30-7:30 pm Questions and Discussion
Black Forest Inn Banquet Room
Nicollet Avenue South at 26th St. W.
We gather at 5:30 in Black Forest Inn’s banquet room. You can order drinks and food and we begin our meeting at 6:15. Each month we have a speaker followed by discussion. Each month will have a new topic/issue for discussion.
Anyone interested in discussing pressing topics related to citizen engagement are invited. Topics studied and discussed in the 2016 were the Voting Rights Act, Amending the U.S. Constitution, and Money in Politics, School Culture, Winning Campaigns, Voter Turnout, Legislating by Amendment, Race, and the state of the Mississippi River.
We would love to have you join us. A discussion with the League of Women Voters means that all voices are heard and we take opinions seriously. In the end, we all learn something new and hopefully have a broader understanding of the issues.
Thank you to our neighborhood sponsor the Whittier Alliance.
