Edelen to address taxing districts at Women’s Network meeting Tuesday


Special to the Register

RICHMOND — State Auditor Adam H. Edelen will give an update on his office’s investigation of special taxing districts at Tuesday’s meeting of the Madison County chapter of the Women’s Network. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Central Bank Community Room at the corner of Lancaster Avenue and Main Street in Richmond.

The meeting is open to anyone interested in learning more about the role of the state auditor in general or the special taxing districts in particular.

The auditor’s role often is described as the “taxpayer’s watchdog,” according to the meeting’s organizers.

The Women’s Network, a policy rather than a political organization, has three current priorities: health care, tax reform and grassroots lobbying. The Madison County Chapter is the fastest growing chapter of the statewide organization devoted to Democratic principles.

Richmond attorney Allison Lobb Emmons chairs the Madison County group. Retired educator Jacqueline Vance is outreach coordinator.
