About one hundred members and guests were on-hand to hear about 2014-15 activities, including production of its most ambitious Voters Guide. The historic Guide will cover all candidate races, propositions, and bond issues in the five-county area. Of special note is inclusion of the 78 candidates running in the historic Austin City Council races. For the first time, the entire publication will be offered in English and Spanish, in print and online.
The League celebrated the successful special fundraising drive to defer costs of the full translation and expanded distribution of both English and Spanish versions. Charles Stuart, Vice President of Government Relations for Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas, was recognized for providing major corporate funding for this Voters Guide effort.
