Contra Costa Elections' Division hosts candidate training
Elections are the core of our democracy. Being a good candidate for an elected seat takes time, effort, and knowledge.
If you're thinking of running for public office, you may be interested in a
Candidate Workshop on May 12, organized by the
County's Elections' Division.
The workshop is open to anyone interested the Contra Costa County candidate and election process. You'll learn about candidate filing, financial disclosure requirements and working with the press, among other things. You'll also hear from past elected officials.
I encourage anyone who is considering or curious about campaigning for public office to attend.

If you can't make it, the Elections' website also had good
web information for potential candidates.
