A press release from McHenry County Young Republican Erik Sivertsen:
Interested in Running for Local Office?
The McHenry County College Political Theory and Debate and the McHenry County Young Republicans are hosting a workshop on how to run for local office.
We will cover topics such as how to get on the ballot, how to challenge petitions and how to file campaign disclosures.
This is a great opportunity to learn how you can greatly impact your community.
These offices that will be on the ballot in April effect how our schools, parks and communities are run.
These are the offices that levy most of the property taxes, and have the greatest impact on our daily lives, and most of them only require 50 signatures to be on the ballot.
The workshop is this Saturday at 9am at MCC in room A101, the event will be FREE, and will last about 1 1/2 hours.
Anybody who is interested in putting their name on the ballot or anybody who just wants to know more about the political process should plan to attend.
