CCDP Newsletter: An Exciting Year Ahead

6 mins read

READY TO RUN FOR OFFICE?

As you all know, we have elections in November at all levels of government. Our communities need strong leaders who embody the values of the Democratic Party and are willing to fight for what is right. We recognize that it is a daunting prospect to put yourself forward for office, but we know that the Charleston Democratic community is filled with strong leaders who can create positive change in elected office. Furthermore, CCDP is filled with people eager to support these strong leaders’ runs!

If you are interested in making a difference in your community, please take time to consider running for office. The South Carolina Democratic Party has put out a form for individuals to express interest in running. Electoral success will require carefully laid out plans, which in turn require time. In addition to the SCDP information that you can access through the button below, here are more resources for women considering a run for office:

CCDP Education Series: How to Canvass and Talk to Voters

CCPD is conducting an Education & Training Series to be held the third Saturday of every month (unless rescheduled due to a holiday.)In February, we will be learning how to effectively canvass (knock doors) and talk to voters convincingly. We will learn and practice various techniques and strategies that will come in handy out in the field. Canvassing is easy and fun when you know how to do it! We need everyone in the game if we are going to win. Space is limited, so sign up for this class today and stay tuned for additional classes in the near future!
