2018 is here and with that comes town, state, and federal elections. Massachusetts elections are often uncontested. About 60% of state legislators do not have a single opponent.
You can change that and it doesn’t take a fortune to run, you don’t need an army of volunteers, and the work you do can make a real difference in your community!
We have a candidate workshop coming up in Somerville on Saturday, March 3rd, 11am-2pm. It is at the Auditorium on the first floor of the Somerville Public Library at 79 Highland Ave. The library is wheelchair accessible.
Our candidate workshop focuses on what you need to do to be successful, whether you win or not. We’ll explain how to run small but effective campaigns, logistics (filing paperwork and gathering signatures), and what happens after you’ve won the election.
Our workshop is open to everyone, regardless of party affiliation. People who’ve served in local office are also encouraged to attend. We hope you’ll share your experiences, and the things you learned while running.
We may have additional workshops in 2018. If you can help organize one in your community, email us at email@example.com.
