League of Women Voters partners with FutureHeights for 2011 Voters Guide

FutureHeights is partnering with the League of Women Voters (LWV) for the 2011 edition of the voters guide. The LWV is a trusted source of information, and compiles an annual voters guide. Future Heights, which publishes the Heights Observer, and the LWV are both nonpartisan organizations that do not endorse candidates. The organizations are working together to avoid duplicating information. Both have produced voter guides in the past.

The LWV is responsible for assembling questions to send to the candidates running for city council and school board seats in Cleveland Heights and University Heights.

FutureHeights has partnered with the LWV in the past. The organization has cohosted candidate forums, and FutureHeights regularly publishes abstracts of city council, school board and other public meetings prepared by LWV observers.

Look for this year’s voters guide in the October issue of the Heights Observer.

As a 501 (c) 3 organization, FutureHeights engages in absolutely no advocacy on behalf of any political candidate. Nor does the organization expend any funds on behalf of a particular candidate.

The Heights Observer does not make endorsements or recommendations. Between July and November, the Observer will not publish candidate contributions of any kind in the printed edition of the paper to ensure that everyone is treated fairly. Because the Observer website does not have space limitations, all candidates are invited and encouraged to make submissions at the Heights Observer website (http://heightsobserver.org) and the Heights Observer/Blogs (http://blogs.heightsobserver.org/).
