League of Women Voters vetting response to important issues

The Door County League of Women Voters hopes for 2021 to continue its path of being a year of advocacy for efforts supporting Door County’s mental health and substance abuse needs. A study presented earlier this year highlights an initiative of a group of LWV members and community residents that dates back to early 2018. That’s when they brainstormed ideas to address questions related to substance abuse and mental health issues. Membership Coordinator for the Door County League of Women Voters Susan Kohout says they wanted to understand Door County’s response to those issues and what help was available for people wrapped up in them.



The League of Women Voters started to interview people from agencies, departments, and organizations in the county to get a sense of how they work regarding understanding their strengths, roadblocks, and what they see the needs in the community to be. The LWV finalized a study last fall that was paraphrased and is on their website.


The LWV’s legislative subcommittee has been active in following up on this study, bringing forth things they hope to see in the budget to Rep. Joel Kitchens and Sen. Andre Jacque. Kohout says one pleasant surprise was people from numerous agencies complementing Door County on how well its agencies and people work together. The LWV finalized the study last fall.
