Talk about energy in a room! More than 200 business and civic leaders turned out for the League of Women Voters of Houston’s 19th Repast Luncheon, titled “The Rebirth of Civic Life.” KHOU’s Grace White opened the program and remarks were made by President Dr. Annie Johnson Benifield, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Harris County Elections Administrator Isabel Longoria, event co-chairs Amber Burton and MaryJane Mudd, and honoree Dr. Peter Hotez, who created a video for the audience due to illness with COVID. There were laughs, hugs, and many nodding heads as speakers shared insights on the importance of a strong democracy in which all can participate.
We appreciate our planning team and all who came to support the League. It’s this support that helps us create the Voters Guide, register voters, advocate for voter rights and so much more!
