Have you ever considered running for office? It's a great way to help steer the community conversation and highlight issues that are important to you. (It's true: It's not all about winning! Every campaign can change the conversation, and that really does matter.)
There are no elections in Grant County in 2021, so now is actually the perfect time to dig deeper into the idea of running for office.
If you think you might be up for it, but you're not sure what office to aim for, here are a few questions to get you started:
What problem(s) would you most like to work on? Every office has a specific set of responsibilities. The key is to find which office oversees the problem area you have in your sights most directly. You want to make a change, right? Then aim for the office that actually has the power to make that change!
Who is your political hero, and what do you like about them? This doesn't mean you have to run for the same office as your hero. But it can give you some insight into the style of campaign you would like to run, or the type of leader you want to be. The answers to questions like these can help you decide what type of office might be a good fit for you.
