Candidate Training

Candidate Training

Delaware County Democrats considering a run for office are welcome and encouraged to attend! Please share this info on behalf of our friends, the Tioga County Democratic Committee. Thank you!


Have you been fired up and ready to take ACTION since November's election? Do you want to BE THE CHANGE you would like to see or know someone who does?

There are 50 local offices up for election this year in Tioga County and most of those offices are held by Republicans who run unopposed election after election. This is not how democracy is supposed to work, folks!  (There are 100 (yes, 100!) local offices on the ballot for Delaware County in 2017--(yes, 2017!) from assessor to town council to town supervisor!)

Our Democratic colleagues to the west, Leslie Danks-Burke, Cindy Emmer and Denise King, recently presented a FANTASTIC candidate training in Corning that was attended by over 90 people! (Leslie is a past candidate for NYS Senate, 58th district and is founder and past president of the Democratic Women of the Southern Tier & Finger Lakes; Denise is past Director of Eleanor's Legacy, former chair of the DRC and an expert in NYS politics; and Cindy is currently the Democratic Commissioner at the Chemung County Board of Elections and former Chair of the Chemung County Democratic Committee.) Combined these ladies have many, many years of campaign experience to share with a new generation of candidates. Lucky for us, they live nearby and have graciously offered to do this training again for us in Tioga County at my invitation.

The fee to attend is $25 per person.

Register HERE by sending your name, address and phone number by email to Diane Lechner. 

Attendees can pay in advance by check or at the door. In either case, all attendees must register prior to the event and can do so directly from the Tioga Democrats website at
