Webinar: So You Want to Run for Office...

ready-to-run-green.png

This webinar is designed for declared candidates, and especially those considering a run for office this year with the Green Party. Potential 2018 candidates also welcome.  Those who are (or plan to be) key support staff or volunteers are also welcome to join.  This particular session will focus on:

  • reasons to run for office (and reasons not to run)
  • what a typical campaign year might look like
  • personal considerations before making the decision
  • how to seek a Green Party endorsement

This webinar will be led by Jennifer Baker, recently elected to the Napa Valley College Board of Trustees and Alex Shantz, who ran her campaign.

Jennifer Baker is currently serving as a Communications Media Specialist for the Napa Valley Unified School District in Napa, CA where she lives with her husband and two elementary school children. She holds Masters degrees in Library Science and Public Administration. In a highly contentious race against a firmly entrenched incumbent and political insider, she was elected to a 4-year term on the Napa Valley College Board of Trustees, representing Area 1 this November. While she has over 25 years of public service experience, this is her first publicly elected position.

Alex Shantz, who also has held office as a Napa Valley College Board of Trustees, is active with the Green Party of California.  He also recently served on the St. Helena United School District Board.  Read more about Alex here: http://www.cagreens.org/news/young-green-elected-student-trustee-napa-valley-college

NOTE:  This call is at 9 PM Eastern time.
