Thinking of running for office? Check out this great video from the National Democratic Training Committee, then read the information below about local support.
By Jeff Orenstein – The Manatee County Democratic Party recently formed a Candidate Committee that is charged with recruiting, training and supporting viable Democratic candidates for public office. The committee’s objective is to help recruits become winners by equipping them to handle modern campaigns. Committee members vet and guide candidates and volunteers in effective campaign training.
The committee plans to offer guidance and perspective along the way from experienced Democratic campaign professionals and volunteers. Tools will be developed to assist candidates and volunteers with campaign videos, social media presence and fundraising.
“Our goal is to contest and win elections for Democrats and bring about a blue wave in Manatee County and better public policy for our citizens,” said Jeffrey R. Orenstein, Chair, Candidate Development and Training Committee. “We are on the lookout for good candidates, with or without prior political experience, to run for all offices on the ballot.”
The committee is also seeking volunteer campaign staff across the full spectrum of what modern campaigns require including managers, field directors, volunteer coordinators and treasurers.
If you would like to help staff a campaign or if you are considering a run for public office, get in touch with Jeff Orenstein, email@example.com as soon as possible. Together, we can turn Manatee County blue.
