Everyone is welcome at League events.
LANIE TIFFENBACH Inspired by the author's immigrant ancestors, this is an intimate account of seven unforgettable women surviving extraordinary challenges and hardships in their new homes in America. These brave pioneer women express their dreams and losses and their joys and heartbreaks in the form of letters, diaries and other writings based on extensive genealogy research, documented facts and historical events. Spanning a time period from 1857 to 1939, their immigration and life stories are at the same time heartbreaking and heartwarming.

Assessing the Assessor: Appraising the Valuation Process
Unit Meetings: February 23-25
The State of Colorado does not require that assessors have a certain level of education or training, or that they be licensed. Should the assessor be appointed or elected? Should there be educational and experience requirements for the position? The assessor's duties include the important functions of discovering, classifying and valuing all taxable real and personal property in the County. The Colorado Legislative Council conducts an annual audit of the Assessor's offices throughout the state. The results of the 2015 audit, as well as the valuation and assessment process, will be presented during the upcoming meeting. The League of Women Voters believes that government should maintain an equitable and flexible system of taxation. Please review the Every Member Material prior to this meeting.
