Workshop on Running for Local Office
With the November election in the final stretch or over, it's time to get down to some really serious business -- running for local office! As part of the Massachusetts Pirate Party's "run local" initiative, we're organizing a series of workshops on how to run in a local election. We're talking town meetings, city councils, and school committees. 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.
If you've ever considered running for local office, then this workshop is for you -- even if you're still on the fence. We'll talk about logistics (filing paperwork and gathering signatures), ideas for running small but effective campaigns, and what happens after you've won the election.
People who've served in local office are also enouraged to attend, regardless of party affilation. We hope you'll share your experiences, and the things you learned while running.
This event will be held in the Mandela Room of the Democracy Center, 45 Mount Auburn St., Harvard Square, Cambridge, from 1:00 - 4:00pm on Saturday Nov 12th. The Democracy Center is an awesome place, but unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible.
