The League of Women Voters of Greater Pittsburgh will present our biennial workshop on How to Run for Public Office on January 24. We do this in odd-numbered years because we believe that most candidates get started in local elections. We will focus on municipal councils, mayors, school directors, County Council and the district judiciary.
The workshop will be held at Point Park University Center, 414 Wood St., Rooms 212 and 213 from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. A continental breakfast will be included. The cost is $50 per person.
The workshop will cover the details of filing nomination petitions and other documents, working with the political parties, understanding the office sought, and running an effective campaign. There will be an opportunity for participants to interact informally with a person who has run for and served in the office sought. There is more detail and a registration form on the attached flyer.
Please forward this information to anyone you believe might be interested in attending or might know someone who would be interested. The wider it is distributed, the better.
The flyer is is also on the League's web site. We welcome any links to it. The address is http://palwv.org/pittsburgh/RunForOffice.pdf
I would be interested in knowing about any links posted.
We look forward to seeing you or any of your friends and associates, their friends and associates, and anyone we can reach through this email at the workshop.
Thank you for your help.

How to Run -- or stand -- for public office, class on Jan 24
This is always a worthy investment of time. Would be nice to see Mark DeSantis attend.
