We’re Here when You Need Us
The League of Women Voters of the San Juans will be hosting a panel discussion entitled “We’re Here when You Need Us” about our Island Resource Centers on Monday, February 8, 2016 at the San Juan Island Library conference room from Noon to 2:00pm. All members and islanders are welcome to join us.
The Executive Directors of all three Island Resource Centers, Erin O’Dell (Orcas), Barbara Gurley (Lopez), and Jennifer Armstrong (San Juan) will be joined by County Council member Rick Hughes to talk to the audience about what the Resource Centers do for our communities, what kinds of cases come their way and the funding problems they encounter.
Funding for emergency affordable housing aid has recently been zeroed out in our county. Since affordable housing of all kinds is an issue of concern to islanders, the reasons by the budget reductions and remedies suggested by these experts will help League members and others advocate for help to these vital agencies. Please join us.
