Meeting Agenda – February 13, 2017

Legislative Update: A regular feature of West County Democrats general meetings is the Legislative Update presented by Glenn Koenen.  Have you ever wondered what our elected officials do aside from raising money for their next campaign?  Glenn provides a compact view of legislative initiatives proposed by our lawmakers at the national and state level.  If it is important to understand exactly what our officials are doing or not doing to improve the well being, health and safety of our community, you can always find his summary on the Legislative Issues page.
