Or if you know someone who might consider it…
The Republican team from Senate District 61 (SD 61) is excited to build our organization and support local candidates in 2014. Our Nominations Committee is meeting at the Community Room at Lund’s Groceries at 1450 West Lake Street on Tuesday, March 25 at 6:30 p.m. to meet potential candidates for Minnesota State House for District 61-A and District 61-B. If you are considering a run, you are welcome to come no matter who you are! We will supply coffee too! At the SD 61 convention on Saturday, March 29th, we will be endorsing one candidate for each of these races.
As part of the meeting, members of our Nominations Committee and Executive Board will be on hand to answer questions about the process of running for state office. It can be a very fun challenge to take on! One of the services that the Nominations Committee will offer is to run background checks for potential candidates ahead of the convention and we ask candidates to bring their Free Credit Report, available at CreditKarma.com There are two potential benefits to this offer for candidates: (1) the local party can help strategize to address any issues in advance and (2) the Nominations Committee can confirm your background as you seek endorsement at the Convention.
We hope you can make it on March 25th. If you cannot, drop me a line and we will work with you as we can. We look forward to working with you on a potential campaign!
