LWV of Buffalo/Niagara organized its annual potluck summer lunch at which they discussed the LWVUS study on Money in Politics. Janet Massaro, chair of the Money in Politics committee presented the information. Included was a “Ted” talk from Lawrence Lessig introducing his book,

Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress – and a Plan to Stop It.

The Health Committee of LWV of Schenectady spent much of its time and attention this year on issues related to aging and on the New York Health Act which describes a single payer health insurance plan for New Yorkers. We invited Laurie Bacheldor from Schenectady County Department of Senior and Long Term Care Services and Ann DiSaro, consultant in aging services, to present “Aging in a Changing Landscape of Services and Resources- Challenges and Opportunities”. Collaborating with AAUW, Schenectady County Retired Teachers, the Jewish Community Center and the Department of Senior and Long Term Care Services brought out a sizable audience and enthusiasm for the program.
