Forum on running for office set

A public information forum on everything you need to know about filing and running for public office will be at 10 a.m., Saturday, April 19, sponsored by the Republican Women of Clallam County at Clallam County Republican Party Headquarters, 509 S. Lincoln St., Port Angeles.

Shoona Riggs, elections supervisor at the Clallam County Auditor’s Office, will present information about running for office and discuss all the pertinent requirements to file as a candidate.

Filing is coming up May 12-16 for candidates for U.S. Congress, state Legislature, most county officials and various judicial posts. This also is the opportunity to file to serve on the County Charter Review Commission and as precinct committee officers.

Have you always wanted to make a difference, but did not know how?  This is your chance to learn all about the process and requirements.

Questions that will be answered include:

What are the qualifications for each position? What forms do I need to fill out?  Are there filing fees?   What Public Disclosure Commission rules apply?

The RWCC especially invites local voters who may be considering running for public office or helping Republican candidates campaign.

The public is welcome and light refreshments will be served.

The RWCC business meeting will be held at 9:30 a.m. prior to the public forum.
