This event is to honor our elected officials for their commitment to our community. Their dedication to public service is the very foundation of our democracy. During the Meet and Greet, League members will have the opportunity for informal discussions with the elected officials. The officials will also be asked to speak briefly about their office and their priorities for the upcoming year. This also affords the League the opportunity to find out where the elected officials stand on issues of interest to the League.
