Letter to the Editor
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that never supports or opposes any candidate or political party. We were, therefore, dismayed to see that Ron Edwards, a candidate for Plymouth Township Treasurer, used the League of Women Voters name in a campaign flier sent to local voters this week.
To be clear:
- Mr. Edwards is not a member of the League of Women Voters.
- Mr. Edwards did not participate in the 2016 League of Women Voters Candidate Forum for Plymouth Township candidates held on June 30, 2016.
- Mr. Edwards did not respond to the League of Women Voters 2016 Voter Guide questionnaire.
- Mr. Edwards was not authorized to use the name of the League of Women Voters in his campaign material.

League of Women Voters of NW Wayne County
