Citizens Guide to local government released by League of Women Voters

The Montezuma County League of Women Voters has published a 30-page booklet about the local governments in the county including those of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe, the County of Montezuma, the city of Cortez and the towns of Dolores and Mancos.

The guide will be distributed to the government and civics classes of the county high schools. It will also be available for free at libraries, city and county offices, chambers of commerce, community centers, real estate offices, and not-for-profit entities.

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 to assist the newly enfranchised women voters of the United States. It is a nonpartisan civic organization which never endorses candidates or parties. The Montezuma League has monthly educational meetings, runs candidate forums at election times, and publishes educational guides about ballot issues.

The guide will soon also be available online at lwvmontezuma.org.
