For the past 12 years, the League of Women Voters has hosted a “meet and greet” evening for community members to get to know their local officials. The 13th annual event provides an opportunity for the public to mingle with city, county and state officials in a relaxed environment. Wine, beer, coffee, and catered hors d’oeuvres will be provided.

This year’s event will be held at Benicia’s Commanding Officer’s Quarters, 1 Commandant Lane, February 23, 5-7:30pm. The League encourages everyone to come with questions, find out what a particular official’s job includes, ask about the officials’ opinions and positions on topics of interest, and share your opinions with government officials. Included in the invitations are Monica Brown, member, Solano County Board of Supervisors, mayor Elizabeth Paterson and Benicia City Council members, city manager, city clerk and treasurer, city attorney, department heads and staff (including the police and fire chiefs and the library director), commissioners, boards, the Benicia Unified School District school board members and superintendent, and state and county officials.

The league hopes to see many friends and neighbors at the event. Any questions may be directed to Judy Potter 707.746.1478,
