If you are even remotely thinking about running for office in 2016 and beyond, please let us know. The best way is to simply send me a personal message to my profile. Do not post your questions or interest on my profile wall or in the comments below for all the world to see. Go to my profile and click on "Send a Message" (just below my profile photo, name and city). Ideally, you should notify us BEFORE you make a final decision to run. I would suggest that you notify us years in advance if possible. You will likely need a good 6 months to 2 years of solid planning before you should even make a public announcement to run for office, if you want to increase your chances of being successful in your run. Very local campaigns will require less time to plan.
We are interested in running candidates that are qualified and well-prepared. Many third parties are happy with getting 5% of the vote in any given election, we are not. Let us know as soon as possible so that we can help you. We will give you honest feedback (including criticism, which is something that you will get plenty of if you wish to run for office). You must be completely committed to giving your time, effort and money (as well as asking everyone you know for money) and dedicated to winning. And that is only after you spend lots of time (months to years) learning, getting better prepared and more qualified for the position.
Someone from the Citizens Party will reach out to you from time to time to help you make the decision and help prepare you. It would be helpful to have an updated resume ready.
