Local politics have the greatest and most immediate impact on your day to day life. Your family's safety, your property taxes, what happens in your public schools, what you can and cannot do with your home - all are directly affected by local elected officials.
Have you thought about running for local office to help your community? Or perhaps you'd like to help a friend run for local office? Party Endorsements start July 18th, but the successful candidates start early. Learn what is involved with running for local office at the next meeting of the New Haven County Republican Assembly which will be Tuesday, May 2nd. Reception starts at 6:00 and the meeting starts at 7:00 pm at Stonebridge Restaurant, 50 Daniel St, Milford. There is no charge for the event and you are welcome to purchase food and drink.
At NHCRA, we strive to educate and inform newcomers to the political world about how things really work in this realm and how to get involved in your government. At this meeting, we will cover what's involved in running for local office, including town council and executive office as well as board of education:
- Important dates on the election calendar;
- The mechanics of running for office - paperwork and ballot access;
- How to fund your campaign;
- How to build a winning team;
- What resources you should use; and
- How to craft winning messaging.
This is very helpful for first time candidates already running. Even if you're not interested in running for office yourself, this will be helpful in learning how to be a valuable part of a campaign, help support your candidate, and make a difference in your community.
At NHCRA, we strive to educate and help everyone become a better Republican, regardless of prior political experience.
NHCRA meetings are always a great opportunity to network and meet like-minded conservative Republicans in a growing grass-roots organization.
Can you please RSVP here so we have a head count for the restaurant?
