Running for office can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.
We’re taking the mystery out of the campaign process and introducing potential candidates to the support network they need to run… and win! Will you join us?
Current and former elected officials, and Democratic Party officers, will be on hand to discuss issues to consider when making the decision to run, how campaigns work, and how to go about seeking the endorsement of the Democratic Party.
Confirmed speakers include:
Luis Alejo, Monterey County Supervisor (District 1); Kayla Jones, Seaside City Council; Neil Patel, Santa Rita School Board; Alan Haffa, Monterey City Council and Chair of the Monterey County Democratic Central Committee; and Adam Pinterits and Valerie Guardiola, campaign organizers.
