Virtual Seminar on How to Run for Local Office

If you think you might run for office – or might work for someone who is – our annual FREE Workshop on How to Run for Local Office will provide you with everything you need to know about running for an Assembly or School Board seat, or serving on a CBJ Board or Commission. The 2020 Workshop is now over.  However, check below for the Toolkit as a reference.  If you have additional questions, you can call the City Clerk’s office at 586-0203.  And check back next year, as this session is held every year.  Hearing directly from others in the community, assembly and school board members, and others is the best way to get involved.

At the Seminar potential candidates, their campaign helpers, or others who may only be thinking about running in the future, learn all about what the jobs entail, deciding and preparing to run, how to get elected, and what happens if/when you win. Each attendee will have access to a full ToolKit of information, including election requirements, the forms that have to be filed as well as many other resources for planning to make a run for the Assembly or School Board. The 2020 Toolkit is available below and on the CBJ Website (make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and open the section called “How to run for municipal office”.)
