In a significant boost for Amendment V, AARP and the League of Women Voters yesterday endorsed the open non-partisan primary proposal on the 2016 ballot. Amy Scott Stoltz of LWV and Erik Gaikowski of AARP appeared at a press conference yesterday with Amendment V chair Rick Knobe to announce their support for Amendment V:
When the League of Women Voters says a measure is good for voters (“V for Voter”—good one, Rick!), it’s kind of hard to argue.
Neither LWV or AARP will be giving the V campaign cash, but Gaikowski says they will be informing their membership of the endorsement.
