Mary Hanson, League of Women Voters
Title: November 2014 Ballot Propositions
Don’t vote this November until you hear about the pros and cons of the ballot propositions from Mary Hanson, speaker from the League of Women Voters and UCSD Oceanids President.
Mary will be discussing the propositions on the ballot for the upcoming election as a member of the League of Women Voters Speakers’ Bureau. Even though the League often takes positions on ballot propositions and proposed legislation (although not on candidates) the League makes every effort to be impartial and nonpartisan in these pro/con presentations. Mary has been involved in the League at the local, county and state levels, and served as the San Diego President from 1983-85.
Mary is a retired French teacher who has also been active in the San Diego community. During her long tenure at Santana High School she led students six times on trips to France, always an adventure. She received her B.A. in French and Russian from the University of Iowa and her M.A.T. in French and Education from Oberlin College.
Mary was on the board of the La Jolla Chamber Music Society for several years and is a longtime member of the Third Thursday book group. She is also active in UCSD Oceanids, as President, Chair of Cafe Français, and as a regular in the Bridge Group.
Sounding Board is a series of seven lectures during the academic year, the first Thursday at 12 noon, sponsored by UC San Diego Oceanids and the UC San Diego Faculty Club. Oceanids, faculty and friends meet at the UCSD Faculty Club in a specially designated room to eat lunch and listen to fascinating speakers. Lunch is $14.00 for guests and $10.00 for Faculty Club members (purchase required). Coffee and iced tea are provided in the meeting room. A parking permit can be obtained at the front desk. You can be sure of a lively discussion! You do not need to RSVP. Contact Judy Vacquier, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
