AUBURN, Ala. -

The League of Women Voters of East Alabama will host guest speaker Gerald Johnson at its general meeting Monday, Sept. 23, to talk about the effects of recent legislation on the poor.

The talk will begin at 7 p.m. at the Auburn First Baptist Church in Fellowship Hall, preceded by a social time with light refreshments beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Johnson is retired from the Auburn University Department of Political Science and is head of AEA's polling program.
