Information Meeting for Potential Candidates

A SYMPOSIUM AND FORUM ABOUT RUNNING FOR LOCAL OFFICE AND ABOUT HELPING SOMEONE ELSE RUN

Thinking of running for something? There are plenty of opportunities coming up starting with an upcoming school board election. Or maybe just curious about running for office? We just thought that a lot of people might be thinking of running but might be deterred by a lack of information about what is involved and what to expect. We know a lot of people who have either run for office or who have served on someone’s  campaign committee.  We might be able to help.

So we are scheduling a meeting for information about running for office.  here are the details:

 

WHEN

Wednesday, June 28, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM

 

WHERE

Clinton County Democratic Headquarters, 224 22nd Place Clinton, Iowa (MAP)

 

OTHER

Tracy Leone who has written a guidebook entitled “Running For Local Elected Offices” will be the main speaker and we will have a few other people speak before we open the floor for any and all questions.

If you or someone you know is interested in running or even just helping with a campaign then make sure that they attend.

 

 

 

Pints and Politics

Rep.Mary Wolfe

and

Sen. Rita Hart

Thursday, June 29

5:00 PM to 7:30 PM

Gils Ballrooms

Pints and Politics events are partly social and partly an opportunity to talk to Senator Hart and Representative Wolfe about any issue or problem that is on your mind. Everyone is invited and there is no charge although you might have the opportunity to buy yourself something to eat. The talk is pretty informal.

 

Senator Rita Hart represents the Iowa Senate District 49, which includes all of Clinton County and some of northern Scott County.

Representative Mary Wolfe represents the Iowa House District 98 which includes the City of Clinton and some nearby territory especially to the northwest.
