Tuesday, May 17, 2011
The League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus congratulates Dave Patton, 2011 Member of the Year.
Dave joined the League, along with his wife Maggie, in October 2005. After joining, it didn’t take Dave long to jump right in as a volunteer. Over the years, he has focused on voter service and advocacy. Currently, Dave serves as the Educational Events Committee chair. This committee is responsible for organizing educational events, such as public forums. The immigration forum in April demonstrated Dave’s ability to bring a well-balanced and highly educational event to League members and members of the public.
Dave has also served as a member of the Steering Committee of the Franklin County Consortium for Good Government. The Consortium is the coalition of nonprofit organizations (of which the League is a member) that sponsors numerous candidate forums across central Ohio each year. He has also served as a moderator of an imPACT Town Hall meeting sponsored by the League.
Dave is a member of the local Advocacy Committee and is a member of the LWVO Lobby Corps, where he focuses on higher education. He has also served a one-year term on the Board of Trustees for the Metropolitan Columbus League.
Dave will be recognized at the annual meeting Jun. 6.
