The League of Women Voters of Orange, Durham and Chatham Counties has launched an educational series for citizens who want to learn more about how local governments work. The series, Let’s Talk Civics, offers an exploration of the workings of government institutions and the roles of elected officials. The program is designed to help citizens understand and become engaged with the government entities that affect their day-to-day lives. The upcoming session on Tuesday, February 22 at 5:30 p.m., features a discussion with Mayor Elaine O’Neal of Durham, Mayor Jenn Weaver of Hillsborough, and Mayor Cindy Perry of Pittsboro.
The mayors will discuss the structure of their governments, how programs and services are funded, how decisions are made, and ways citizens can become involved. The virtual program is free and open to the public, but registration is required by using this registration form.
