LWV hosting meeting on ethics laws
The League of Women Voters of the Florence area is sponsoring a meeting on “Ethics in Government” on Monday, Oct. 26, in the Francis Marion University Nursing School auditorium at 5:30 p.m. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. Lynn Teague, vice president for Issues and Action with the South Carolina League of Women Voters, will lead the discussion.
Topics will include Violations of Ethics Laws That Have Been Made Public; Why They Matter and What We Can Do About Ethics Violations and Criminal Charges. Ms. Teague is a native South Carolinian with roots in Orangeburg and Lancaster Counties before moving to New Mexico and, later, to Arizona where she served on the faculty of Arizona University, Tucson, and as curator of archaeology at Arizona State Museum.
Following her retirement, she returned to South Carolina and became involved with the League of Women Voters. Soon after, Ms. Teague was introduced to the South Carolina State House where she serves as a lobbyist for LWV-SC. In her present role as VP for LWV issues and actions, Ms. Teague also works to encourage advocacy by all members of local, state and national League goals.
The League of Women Voters is a non partisan, political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
