If you are considering running for an elected office, you will want to attend a seminar for prospective candidates for Garza County countywide and precinct offices, Thursday, Nov. 17, 6:30 p.m. in the CitizensBANK Community Room, 210 N. Broadway.
The seminar is a joint effort of the Democratic Party, Republican Party and the County Clerk. The event will provide an opportunity for prospective candidates to learn important dates and deadlines; who to contact to file; information about laws regarding campaign advertising and finance; and will include a Question and Answer session.
A recent court order changed the filing period for candidates to file applications for the primary election. The filing dates are now Nov. 28 through Dec. 15.
Candidates should file with the chair of the party of their choice during this time period. Democratic Party County Chair, Bebe Boren, 806-629-4475, email@example.com and Republican Party County Chair, Trevor Thuett, 806-777-8388, firstname.lastname@example.org.
