 Ready to Lead Workshop

Just in time for our Municipal Elections in November and definitely in time to plan ahead for the 2018 elections, LeadNC (  presented a Ready to Lead workshop session for potential candidates and potential campaign staff in Eastern NC.

The workshop was held at the Oriental Town Hall, 507 Church Street, Oriental, NC on Saturday, August 26th from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm

From one of the participants: "The Ready to Lead Workshop presented by LEAD NC was informative to candidates as well as to those who want to support candidates. We discussed our motivation for running for office or working on campaigns. A very interesting part of the day was learning how to tell our own story. We each identified a personal experience that had brought us to do this work and to be part of the political process. Lunch was an important part of the day as we got to meet people and talk. The presenters also shared some of the nitty gritty aspects of running for office such as organizing money, planning for the campaign (hint: you start backwards from the voting date), organizing people and building a base. It was a full day. As with most useful workshops we could have used more time. We are very grateful that the facilitators, Kara Hollingsworth and Caroline Spencer came all the way from Raleigh to our corner of NC."

Kara Hollingsworth and Caroline Spencer led the session.

Get Out the Vote

Many people fought for your right to vote. No matter your race, gender, or age, your right to vote came at a price. Honor the sacrifices others made so that your voice could be heard when theirs wasn't.

GOTV (gee-oh-tee-vee) stands for Get Out The Vote and is used to describe a strategy for ensuring that voters who are most likely to vote for your campaign actually do so. It sounds simple, but there can be many hurdles, and remember: your opponent is doing the same thing.

Worried about the direction of our government? Don’t just tweet. Don’t just protest. Get in there and do something about it.

The most meaningful thing you can do in the age of Trump, for your community, for your country, is run for office. Across America, Republican politicians stand ready to do their part in the implementation of the Trump and GOP agenda. Beat them. Across America, Democrats blind to the stakes of the moment, comfortable in their positions or too timid to fight effectively against the Republican Party, stand, like bowling pins, ready to be knocked down again. Replace them. Not with some milquetoast professional or former lobbyist groomed by the state party. You. You, with the undocumented parents; you, who remembers when your town was a steel town; you, PTA regular; you, professor; you, concerned citizen, should run.
