PLDL hosts workshop

The Portage Lake District Library will host the Houghton County Democratic Party on Wednesday, from 6-9 p.m. for “A Primer on Running for Local Office: Getting You to “Yes.”

This workshop will be lead by Valorie Troesch and will address the truths and myths about what it takes to run for local office. Participants will learn what the local elective and appointed positions are and what qualifications are required for each position, how to get on the ballot, how to prepare to run for local office, how to run a winning campaign, and what resources are available to support candidates. People who have run for local office will share their experiences.

“We Democrats work hard to advocate for values and policies that reflect who we are and that promise better lives for the people in our community,” Troesch commented.
