John Howe to Participate in America Reads the Constitution and Informed Voters Project Event on September 15

It was an honor to again be invited to be a reader at this great event and to participate in the Informed Voters Project. Americans often disagree with, lament or get angry at the actions of elected officials. Because of the overwhelming lack of voter education in our schools and in the general population, our citizens fail to realize the importance of voting. In many instances, Americans have no idea and would be hard pressed to explain how laws are passed or how judges are elected or appointed. These are the very people who make decisions that affect our lives every day. This is why I gladly said yes when Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Pariente asked me to participate in the IVP.

In addition, Palm Beach County Bar Association President Theo Kypreos has issued a request for lawyers to go out into the community and speak about civics and workings of our government and courts. If your civic group, community service organization or school is in need of a speaker to discuss civics, elections, government and the courts, please feel free to contact our office at (561) 296-7772 or jhowe@johnhowelaw.com.
