National Run for Office Day!

Happy Run for Office Day!

Have you considered running for office? Do you know someone who should?

There’s so much attention on the 2020 presidential election (and the approximately 47,000 people running for president) that the down-ballot races don’t get nearly as much notice as they should.

Too often, down-ballot seats get buried by the media, political pundits, and voters for more glamorous elected positions *cough presidential race cough* but the folks elected to these offices are the people who shape our towns and districts (literally). They are the ones protecting our reproductive rights, fighting for better funding for public education, and making sure comprehensive gun reform is passed on the state and local level.
