Run for Local Office Workshop - Somerville
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 every election. You can change that!
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 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 encouraged to attend, regardless of party affiliation. We hope you'll share your experiences, and the things you learned while running.
Our workshop will be Saturday, March 3rd. It will be in the Auditorium on the first floor of the Somerville Public Library at 79 Highland Ave. Somerville from 11am to 2pm. The library is wheelchair accessible.
We may have additional trainings in 2018. If you can help organize one in your community, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
