Candidate Recruitment Committee

All MCDC Committee Members are expected to speak with their friends, neighbors, and associates about running for local office.  MCDC also welcomes candidate suggestions from the community.  Once prospects are identified, the MCDC's Chair and Vice Chairs will meet with prospective candidates and discuss the process for running for office.   Prospective candidates must demonstrate a strong interest in running and serving and must be able to work collaboratively for the common good.  Prospective candidates must also commit the necessary time to the election process and to serving in the role, if elected. 

Candidate Training and Campaign Support Committee

The Candidate Training and Campaign Support Committee provides candidates with preliminary orientation for running for office.  The committee is responsible for writing and scheduling training sessions on topics such as Canvassing, Fundraising, Community Outreach, Endorsements, VoteBuilder, and Social Media.
