Candidate Training in Delaware County
UPDATE! Workshop is filled! Registration is closed.
Something's got your goat?
Run for office!
Have you been fired up and ready to take ACTION since November's election? Do you want to BE THE CHANGE you seek, or know someone who does? Then mark May 20th on your calendar and plan to attend this essential workshop on campaigning for office!
Who should attend:
- • candidates
- • potential candidates
- • DCDC town chairs
- • anyone interested in helping with a candidate's campaign.
There are 100 local offices up for election this year in Delaware County THIS YEAR, 2017! 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!
Denise King, our Democratic colleague to the west, will lead this workshop. Denise was a founding member of the Eleanor Roosevelt Legacy Committee. She worked to mobilize rural counties in 2000 for Hillary Clinton's Senate race, was NY co-chair of Howard Dean's 2004 presidential campaign, and a senior advisor to Gillibrand's 2006 Congressional race. In 2016 Denise was campaign manager for Leslie Danks Burkes's NY State Senate race. (Leslie will be one of our featured speakers at the Delaware County Democratic Committee banquet on May 4th.)
This will be an interactive workshop along with a Q&A time.
Topics to be covered, but not limited to these, will include:
- • petitioning,
- • finances,
- • public relations,
- • strategies, and above all,
- • the need to have a plan.
Bring a bag lunch. Water and dessert are provided.
There is a modest suggested donation of $15 to attend, payable in advance to DCDC. You may register online or send checks made payable to Delaware County Democratic Committee, to Susan Sklenarik, 3 Sunset Ave, Sidney, NY 13838.
