As a potential candidate, we want you to be prepared to take on the challenge of running for office. If your race is at the state or federal level, we’ll encourage you to spread out to the district you’re interested in. Get behind the wheel and road-trip to all communities and rural areas where voters live and work. Become involved in issues and organizations that impact everyone. Meet people everywhere and start making connections if you haven’t already.
In addition, you should connect with Democratic Women’s Clubs and Democratic Clubs in all locations where your chosen office has an impact. Your networking efforts could also include becoming involved in civic organizations where you intend to run. Consider attending public forums, governmental meetings, and Chamber of Commerce events. Volunteer opportunities for residents are also available from both Charlotte County and the City of Punta Gorda are also great ways to get involved.
