LWVMA Approves Study on Campaign Finance

The League of Women Voters of Massachusetts approved a new study at its convention May 17-18 in Peabody.

The study, “Massachusetts after Citizens United. SO WHAT DO WE DO NOW?” will consider whether or not the League’s existing campaign finance positions are adequate to meet the challenges of Citizens United and related recent Supreme Court decisions, and if not, what additional positions are needed.

Current Issues

The LWV recognizes that both open space and affordable housing are important aspects of community life.  The Williamstown LWV feels, however, that given the devastation of Hurricane Irene and the immediate human crisis for former residents of the Spruces, our town would be best served by development of a portion of the Lowry property – originally intended for a new high school — for housing.

The Spruces current location would replace the open space of the Lowry property with land accessible to the entire town for open space recreation.  We look forward to hosting one or more discussions on this issue in the coming months.
