    The Ones We Are Waiting For: Run for Local Office

    Are you an activist who wants to make a bigger difference in our community? Are you ready to get more involved in local matters, especially where injustice occurs? Do you feel you have more to give to our town, our park district, and our library? It's time for you to run for local office! Local elections aren't until April 2023, but it is not too late to start learning about what it takes to run for local office and WIN. We'll be talking to local elected officials about how they decided to run, what they did to get the word out, and how they WON their local races. Most of the local races in the Greater Palatine Area are won by incumbents who are unchallenged at the ballot box. It is time for change! Join us for this Zoom event!
