So You Want to Run for Political Office and Make a Difference?   

If you ever thought you might run for political office, Decker 201 is the place to be on Saturday February 17th. First, you will hear what motivated citizens do to run for the State Legislature, County wide office, mayor, and municipal trustees/councilman. Then you will find out the nuts/bolts of getting on the ballot, running a campaign, fundraising, and political advertising. Then you will have a free lunch and have the chance to talk to party officials. Following lunch, there will be sessions on how to prepare for public office, understanding budgets, and listening to citizens before and after the campaign. Finally, a special session, “Run Sister Run”, will address why/how women should run for office. There is no cost for learning how to throw one’s hat in the ring! This non-partisan event is co-sponsored by the SUNY Broome Center for Civic Education, the History/Philosophy/Social Sciences Department and Student Assembly. Facilitators: Doug Garnar, Sharon Exley and Carla Michalak.
