TWO LEAGUERS WHO WANT YOU TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
Take a look now at the October Hot Topics (see online LWVPBC Facebook Video Archives) to learn how two Leaguers saw a need and did something about it! What do the two October Hot Topics Speakers have in common? It’s not a trick question. The former LWV Florida State President ’15 – ’18 and, now, President/CEO of Ruth’s List, Pam Goodman, and Marion Frank, Candidate Recruitment Chair and PBC Republican Executive Committee member, are ready to recruit you and your acquaintances for public office. As unlikely as it may seem to most of us, Pam and Marion laid out how doable it can be to run for local and state office and more. Luncheon attendees were mesmerized by their timely talks. Pam taught the audience the 3 Rs: Reconnaissance, Recognition, and Recruitment. Marion was very convincing that, despite the perceived quantity of candidates, finding quality candidates remains challenging. Marion encouraged Leaguers to attend early 2020 bi-partisan and non-profit Leadership Institute’s Campaign Management Training to be held close by. If you or someone you know is thinking of running for public office, Pam and Marion should definitely be immediately contacted. Remember that Hot Topics are streamed LIVE – Don’t miss Health Care Reform on November 20th.
