Official to discuss voting issues at League dinner

The Junior League of Women Voters of Greenwich (LWVG) is set to feature the president of League of Women Voters of Florida at the LWVG’s annual dinner on June 5.

Deirdre Macnab will present “Florida: Where Citizens Wait in Line for Eight Hours to Vote” in what LWVG expects to be an especially relevant and informative address. A question and answer period will follow. With the league’s strong commitment to voting rights and the difficulties encountered by Florida voters during the last presidential election, where cut backs in early voting led to long lines on Election Day, league officials said this should be a timely and informative talk.

Ms. Macnab is in her second term as president of Florida’s League of Women Voters. She has been recognized by La Prensa newspaper as a “Community Champion” for their annual Mujeres Destacadas Awards, by the Florida Commission on the Status of Women as a recipient of their 2012 Florida Achievement Award, and by the Orlando Sentinel as the 2012 Most Influential Central Floridian of the Year.

Ms. Macnab, the daughter of a Riverside resident, received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science from New York University and an M.B.A in marketing and finance from Columbia.

The League of Women Voters of Greenwich annual dinner will take place at the Riverside Yacht Club on Wednesday, June 5. The annual meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m., with the cocktail hour at 6:30, followed by the dinner and speech at 7:30.
