At the Feb. 3 meeting of the Plymouth City Commission, Mayor Oliver Wolcott presented a proclamation of recognition to the League of Women Voters acknowledging the 100thanniversary of the 19thamendment to the Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. This year is also the 100thanniversary of the founding of the League.

One hundred years ago, women didn’t have representation in government. With the ratification of the 19th Amendment, women and their allies won the biggest growth in our democracy in the last century.

The national celebration on Feb. 14 of the League’s 100-year milestone brings together Leagues in over 750 communities across the country with one unified day of action.

Wolcott read the proclamation into the record, thanked the League of Women Voters for all the work they do to provide information to the public and keep people informed, and presented the certificate to Northwest Wayne County Chapter President, Paul Bowman, and League member, Plymouth resident Megan Chenoweth.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan organization that never supports or opposes candidates or political parties. Education of the public is one of their primary goals.
