Join the Discussion of Book by Long-Time LeaguerMarch 5th, 2012 by lwvkitsap
From Eagle Harbor Books:
You are invited to join the authors of Politics of the Possible, Mary Ellen McCaffree and Anne McNamee Corbett, this Thursday for a discussion of positive politics and how to achieve a legislative process that focuses on problem solving with policy in the public’s interest. Also we expect to consider the citizens’ role in the governmental process through greater understanding of how the legislative process really works, especially among younger voters.
The discussion will take place at Eagle Harbor Books, 157 Winslow Way E, Bainbridge Island at 7:30 P.M., Thursday, March 8 and will be based on the new book, Politics of the Possible, the Decade Our American Democracy Worked. .
Mary Ellen is a “life time” member of the League of Women Voters and a member of the Kitsap League for many years following the early 1980′s. Formerly a two term President of the Seattle League, she resigned to seek and did serve four terms in the House of Representative in the State legislature. Mary Ellen pays special tribute to the League, not only in providing her experience valuable in the legislature, but for its efforts and its role in spurring greater voter awareness and involvement and in spearheading change. The book’s “message is as American as they come: citizens can make a difference.”
The book offers a timely and refreshing approach to today’s often frustrating governmental process. The authors tell how collaboration between the political parties was achieved during the tumult of the 1960’s and stands as a model for our times. It shows how politics can be positive and progressive and how a responsible focus on problem solving can overcome partisan ills.
