During the regularly scheduled meeting of the Kittitas County Board of Commissioners on February 4th and in honor of 100 year anniversary of the League of Women Voters and the 19th Amendment to the Constitution granting women the right to vote, the Kittitas County Commissioners proclaimed February 14, 2020:

Women’s Voting Rights Day

in Kittitas County.

L to R: Commissioner Cory Wright, Kathy Matlin (President LWV Kittitas County), Commissioner Laura Osiadacz, Commissioner Brett Wachsmith

I appreciate the League’s work to bring informational aspect to the community…it’s organizations like [the LWV] that helps connect the voters. Thank you for your work.

-Commissioner Wright

I really appreciate the work the League does in our county, it’s a great service you provide to our community. I think Kittitas County would be lacking without the work you do. I really want to thank the League for their work to strive for open and transparent government.

-Commissioner Osiadacz

I echo what the other Commissioners have said… I thank you for all of your hard work and effort that goes into it that probably goes unnoticed by a lot of people.

-Commissioner Wachsmith
