Local Action Workshop #1: Running for Office

Thursday, April 21, 2022
6:00 PM – 7:00 PM

Have you ever thought about running for a local office but don’t know where to start?

Join us for the first training in our Local Action series and hear from folks across the state who have run for office. From the city councilors to the local school board, from candidates who have won their races and those that have lost, from young organizers to seasoned community members, this panel will bring together a range of voices and experiences to answer your questions.

Nearly 40% of state legislature races go uncontested; that number only grows when you zoom into local races, with some seats remaining empty after the election. Maine communities deserve representation and leadership that reflects everyone who lives there. Build your skills as a community leader and hear about the experiences of folks just like you who have run for office.

Don't forget to sign up for all the sessions:
