Meet & Greet the Candidates!

LWVGR Forums

The League of Women Voters of Greater Rockford, a non-partisan organization more than 100 years old, along with AAUW, Rockford Public Library, AKA sorority and the Belvidere North High School Student Voice Club are pleased to invite you to participate in these LWVGR Spring 2024 Candidate Meet & Greets. There are a series of five (5) Meet & Greets scheduled.

Although most races will not be competitive, we see the Candidate Meet & Greets as a great opportunity for citizens to get to know the candidates who will be in office – understand their priorities and share your priorities and concerns with them – let them hear your voice. Please start spreading the word and encouraging others to participate.
