The importance of being an educated candidate
Running for office is both a great privilege and a wonderful contribution to the civic life of a community.
But it’s important that candidates get training in how to properly and legally conduct a campaign., particularly first-time candidates who don’t have the experience navigating the filing requirements, deadlines and general rules governing election campaigns.
