“Women considering a first run for public office and political veterans should attend this valuable training to learn how to run to win without costly consultants and media budgets,” said CTA Women’s Leadership Trainer and NWPC-Mendocino President Val Muchowski of Philo.
Campaign skills training will be taught by NWPC certified trainers Ginger Pohlson of Willits, Estelle Clifton of Ukiah, and Susanne La Faver of Hidden Valley Lake, Lake County; and SEIU Labor Organizer Linda McClure of Ukiah.
Besides skills training, the day-long session includes campaign handbook, lunch with a panel of politically knowledgeable women, and a wine reception. Topics include why run, getting started, fund raising, campaign team, nuts and bolts, endorsements and online campaigning.
The luncheon panel of elected women, moderated by Estelle Clifton, includes Mendocino County Supervisor Carre Brown, Mendocino County District Attorney Meredith Lintott, and Ukiah City Councilmember Mari Rodin.
Training is geared for candidates with budgets of $25,000 or less and campaign teams of family, friends, community activists and political veterans.
Registration is $25. Cost for students, low-income women and SEIU members is $15.
