Ever Think of Running for Office – Attend Candidate Workshop!

February 4, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$25

For all those people who have ever thought about serving on their school board, borough council or township board – here’s your chance to learn how to do it.

The workshop won’t offer campaign tips or strategies; rather the focus is on understanding the roles, responsibilities and personal rewards that come with public service.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
  • An overview of Pennsylvania local government and the responsibilities of a township supervisor, a borough council member, or a school board director.
  • Instructions on how to run: filing a petition, reporting campaign expenses and other important information.
  • Learn from a panel of local officials who will talk about why they decided to run for office and some of their experiences since they were elected.

If you have questions, call Peter Wulhorst at 570-296-3400.
