About the LWV 

With a grant from the state League, LWVPike welcomed Susan Spicka of Education Voters of PA to present a panel discussion on upcoming changes to school funding formulas in Pennsylvania.  She was joined by members of Pike and Monroe Counties' education community for a lively and informative discussion.

LWVPike presented Fritz Walker of FairDistrictsPA who spoke on the unfairness of gerrymandering and pending redistricting reform legislation at the Pike County Public Library.  A full house of concerned voters came out on a rainy Wednesday to hear him.  The work of FDPA resulted in judicial relief from Congressional gerrymandering in PA.
