“How do Judges Get and Keep Their Jobs?” hosted by League of Women Voters on January 20, 2016

The public is invited to participate in the dialogue, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 20, at the Hearth Restaurant, 4604 N. Prospect Road, Peoria Heights, IL. Social hour begins at 5 p.m.

This dialogue about judge appointment, election, and retention will open with comments from retired Judge Glenn Collier, and will be facilitated by League members. Judge Collier was an associate and circuit judge for 16 years, serving after his retirement as Corporation Counsel for the City of Peoria IL. His comments will be inclusive of the various methods that judges are appointed, elected, or retained.

The League believes that democratic government depends upon informed and active participation at all levels of government.

Drinks & Dialogue provides an opportunity for people to share opinions and ideas, ask questions and become more aware of local, state and national issues and the options for making change. There’s no cost to participate, and refreshments are available to buy.

Drinks & Dialogue is offered monthly, on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, for one hour starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Hearth with local, state, and national political topics.

The League is a non-partisan, issues oriented, volunteer, member-directed organization committed to open, responsive and effective government brought about by informed, involved citizens with membership open to both men and women in Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties.
