Linda Mather Relocates
After many years as a member  of  the Princeton Area LWV, Linda Mather is moving to Portland, Oregon, where she will continue offering her invaluable services to the League. We wish her much happiness and fulfillment in her new life.

Linda's many contributions to the LWV include being president of the LWV-Princeton Area from 1987 to 1991, and Membership Leadership Development (MLD) coach for the Burlington League.

Linda has been one of the LWVNJ's most sought-after moderators, and she also moderated in Pennsylvania. She has run training programs for prospective moderators and worked with the LWVNJ in many capacities.

Linda hints that she may return each October to help out, but we'd be content with just a social visit. Linda is one of the most dedicated and experienced League members in all of New Jersey, and we're proud that she has been a long-standing member of the Princeton Area League. We offer her our sincere thanks for her many contributions, and will greatly miss her.
