Coffee and Conversations: Raising up tomorrow's leaders




JO DAVIESS COUNTY -- The League of Women Voters of Jo Daviess County invites all to join the 1 p.m. Saturday, April 24 online event, Coffee and Conversation: Raising up Tomorrow’s Leaders.

Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (IL-17) will be the keynote speaker, sharing her experience and guidance for those interested in taking on public office.

The event is free, but pre-registration is required in order to receive the Zoom link to attend. Please RSVP to

This conversation with Bustos is timely, said Shari Kochman, president of the League of Women Voters of Jo Daviess County.  “We believe this subject is relevant - especially as we look at our countywide April 6 election with few true races and some vacancies,” Kochman said. “We regularly have uncontested or vacant election races in Jo Daviess County - a fact that is disturbing. There seems to be a growing indifference to public service.”

In addition to talking about public service, leaders of the league will share highlights of how the League of Women Voters has made a difference both locally and nationally. The audience is also welcome to participate in a 15-minute Q&A session with Bustos and local League leaders.


Please RSVP to by Thursday, April 22.

The League of Women Voters is nonpartisan, but political.  The League does not support or oppose candidates or political parties.  The League does work to influence public policy through citizen education and advocacy, and encourages our members to be politically active. 

Our local League formed in 1981 by a group who wanted to be informed and active on local, state, and federal issues.  

The League was founded in Chicago in 1920 by leaders of the women's suffrage movement to educate new

women voters and fight for social reform.
