Leanore (Lee) Bona

Director| Lbona@lwvma.org | Local League: Worcester Area

Lee currently serves as Second V.P. on the LWVMA Board, a trustee of the Lotte E. Scharfman Fund, a member of the Budget and Finance Committees, and on the State Nominating Committee (past Chair).  She strongly supports local leadership and program development and enjoys reporting for the Board at Field Service and League Leader meetings.  She sees the State’s task as moving us forward together into our second century – visible, viable and relevant.  Lee joined the Worcester Area League in 1998 and put public relations, media development, voter services, vice president, and president into her portfolio.  She continues to support experimenting with local league structure, collaboration with other organizations, college outreach, and regionalization of programs. Lee initiated LWV participation in Worcester Naturalization Ceremonies, spun off League presence in other counties, and would love to imprint the LWV brand on every ceremony conducted in the Commonwealth!  She has an M.A. from New York University, a J.D. from New England Law in Boston and is not quite retired.  In her spare time, Lee volunteers with Abby’s House, a shelter for women and their children, and the Worcester Public Library.
