How do I run for a local office as a first time candidate?

Our experience has shown us that with the right training, support and materials, at the right times, down-ticket candidates can successfully run their own campaigns. We know that most down-ticket candidates start off with a lot of drive but not a lot of resources, financial or otherwise. That is why our services are carefully tailored to help candidates get going by offering the right services at the right time.

— Our Services —

When you are just starting out as a candidate, you have so much drive but not a lot of direction. We have a series of three interactive online training seminars that can help you answer the questions:

  • What does it mean to be a candidate?
  • How do I answer the question “why are you running?” in a way that is memorable, effective, and (ideally) positive?
  • How do I start fundraising and reaching out to voters?
  • Who should I reach out to?

Now that you know a little bit more about why you’re running and who to reach out to, you now have the question, what do I need to get started? Our campaign in a box package offers all the things you need, in an incremental package that builds you what you need when you need it, so that you can afford to get your campaign off the ground. We work with you to create the collateral you need and further coaching and training to get out there and connect with voters and stakeholders.

If more money comes in, we offer additional support for candidates who found our Interactive Seminars and Campaign in a Box package helpful. This can include further training, targeting and strategic consulting, mail design and/or management, video and digital services, vendor management and more.
