How To Run For Elected Office, Coming Up In Bethesda


Published:

If you're planning a future political campaign, or if you're just interested in how the local campaign process works, Leadership Montgomery has a workshop coming to Bethesda that might pique your interest. On Saturday, March 2, the group will run an event called "How to run for elected office," with tips on how to raise money, contact voters, conduct media outreach, gain endorsements and build a campaign team. Speakers include Gaithersburg County Councilman Phil Andrews (who according to The Gazette has started a 2014 county executive campaign of his own), Brian McKevitt from the county's Board of Elections, David Moon from political blog Maryland Juice, former County Councilman Michael Knapp, Montgomery County Republican Central Committee first vice chair Katja Bullock and public relations and marketing professional Steve Simon. The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane) and costs $35 with preregistration and $50 at the door. It's open to everyone, whether you're potential candidate, campaign manager, campaign fundraiser or a resident interested in the nuts and bolts of the process. For more information and to preregister, visit the event page on the Leadership Montgomery website.
