Candidate Resources

March 5, 2019 is Town Meeting Day. This will have a huge impact on our day-to-day lives. We’ll get a chance to voice our opinion on what our community should look like and how our money is spent. So we should vote, but we should also run for office! By filling local offices, we can help our neighbors and build a bench of candidates for higher offices. This is important work! And yet many of these offices are currently vacant.

So please encourage your friends and family to run, or run yourself! If you are interested in running for local office and have questions, please contact your Town Chair or the Interim Rutland County Democratic Chair, Heather at hastevenson9@gmail.com. Additional information can be found below.
