CONGRESSMAN RICHARD E. NEAL TO ADDRESS WILLIAMSTOWN LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS
Neal to Discuss Current Events and Give Update on Washington
(Williamstown) Congressman Richard E. Neal will join dozens of engaged Berkshire County residents to deliver remarks on current events at a Williamstown League of Women Voters speaking series.

"I applaud the Williamstown League of Women Voters for keeping Berkshire County citizens engaged and informed," said Neal. "I look forward to a lively conversation on a variety of public policy initiatives."

The Williamstown League of Women Voters is part of the national League of Women Voters, an organization founded  shortly after women got the right to vote. The League of Women Voters  is non-partisan, with state and local chapters. The Williamstown chapter began nearly 85 years ago and is the only chapter in Berkshire County. 

"While the League does not support candidates, we encourage citizen participation in government as informed voters," said Williamstown chapter President Anne Skinner.  "We study issues such as environmental protection, social justice and governmental processes with a view to influencing public policy by educating voters and lobbying elected officials such as the Congressman."
