Class for Future Political Candidates
Political candidates and those already in office gathered for a non-partisan candidate training class at the Great Northern Hotel to learn how to run a successful election campaign.
Event organizers say the class teaches people about issues like campaign rules, budgeting, and using social media for promotion.
Lewis and Clark County Commission candidate Dennis Smalls attended, along with incumbent Susan Good Geise.
Donya Parrish, Montana Credit Union Network says, “It's not just important to file for the race and have people know your name that you really need to have a message, you really need to be able to articulate the reason that you're running for office.”
East Helena City Council member Kit Johnson also attended, he says the class is useful because he may consider running for re-election, or for a seat in the state legislature in the future.
