Toss Your Hat in the Ring
This workshop includes:
- an overview of Pennsylvania local government and the responsibilities of a township supervisor, a borough council member, or a school board director
- instructions on how to run: filing a petition, reporting campaign expenses and other important information
- a panel of local officials who will talk about why they decided to run for office and some of their experiences since they were elected
The workshop won't offer campaign tips or strategies; rather the focus is on understanding the roles, responsibilities and personal rewards that come with public service.
