Candidates' Open House

Thinking about running for office in 2019?  Or looking to get involved with a campaign?

Join us for this Open House & Forum to discuss the 2019 Election and our process for endorsing candidates.  

Party Chairman Kurt Young and Bryan Latta, Chair of our Screening Committee, will be there to discuss the process of asking for the party’s endorsement and support. All potential candidates are welcome to attend.

In the meantime, for a list of what offices are on the ballot this coming year, go to our website lucascountydemocraticparty.com/2019-screening-process/ You can download our screening packet right from that page.  When you look at the packet, you’ll see that we want to know about you, what would make you a good candidate and public servant, how you are connected in the community, how you would campaign and of course, we hope, win and serve.  

The deadline for applications to be submitted is January 18th at 4 PM.   We will then forward all applications to our Screening Committee, who will contact interested candidates and schedule them for screening interviews.  

Also, if your plans are more long-term or you’re looking to get more involved with the campaign process, the Lucas County Democratic Party offers monthly training sessions that are free and open to local Democrats.  They are on the fourth Monday of the month at Headquarters.  Check out our website and Facebook pages for details on what session is when.
