The Party of Open: Open Government, Open Culture, Open Innovation & People First

Candidates Wanted

Is open & accountable government important to you? Is the increasing militarization of police the 10th step too far? Tired of the same people in office election after election? Local government not meeting your needs?

Be a Pirate candidate!

Thousands of local offices are up for grabs in 2019.  These elected officials oversee our tax rates, government spending, as well as make laws that limit competition, subsidize big companies, hide what what the government is doing, or make it easier for the police to spy on us.

These races can be won and we want to help you succeed. Getting on the ballot is easy, and winning is in sight. If not you, who; if not now, when?

Fill out our Supporter form, and check “I’m interested in: running for office”; we’ll get back to you quickly about becoming a candidate.

    I don’t really want to run for office, but my town has a complete… erm… jerk on the School Committee who will apparently be running for re-election unopposed, and *someone* has to provide an alternate choice. One issue has been a huge *lack* of transparency about the money (the facts that he’s also both manipulative *and* a bully don’t help…). I have several friends in the Iceland Pirate Party, who have got me interested, so I thought I would look to see if there were Pirates here in MA, and here you are! So I’ll be lurking around reading up on things. Advice and suggestions happily welcomed!

    “I wish someone (else) would so it!” is a common refrain. But asking for what you would like to see *is* the first step. Where do you live? Who would you like to see defeated? Want to talk privately? Email me: Got encryption? Public key is posted at:
