What's involved in running for public office? How much time does it take? What does it cost? What are the rules? What are the enjoyable aspects and what are the uncomfortable parts? These are among the questions that will be answered in a free workshop July 9. It is open to anyone in our region considering seeking public office.
The Modesto Chamber of Commerce, The Bee, and activists from the Republican and Democratic parties have teamed up for more than a decade to offer these workshops. While the organizers don't have common views on many subjects, they do agree that voters benefit from having a choice among well-prepared candidates. The workshops are intended to help people become good candidates.
The workshop will be from 8:45 a.m. to noon July 9 at the Stanislaus County Nick W. Blom Salida Regional Library, 4835 Sisk Road, just off Highway 99.
Reservations are strongly suggested to assure sufficient materials. Contact the chamber office at (209) 577-5757 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday.
