Elected leaders from several levels of state government will take part in a panel discussion Oct. 22, 6-8 pm, about the challenges and opportunities presented by running for public office.
Assembly representative and congressional candidate Amanda Stuck, Door County Sheriff Tammy Sternard and Gibraltar School Board member Angela Sherman are confirmed for the panel presented by Door Collectivist. A Q&A session during which attendees can learn more about running for office will follow a moderated panel discussion, and district maps, voting information and forms needed to get on the ballot in Door County will be available.
Locally and nationally, more underrepresented people are running for office, said Door Collectivist organizer Charolette Baierl.
“We want to continue the momentum we’re seeing on a national level and offer community members guidance and support to run for office in Door County,” Baierl said. “This event is for anyone who supports improved representation at all levels of government. Mentors, fence-sitters and the generally curious are all welcome to attend.” The event will take place at the Door County Community Center, 916 N. 14th Ave. in Sturgeon Bay, and will feature a build-your-own taco bar and nonalcoholic beverages.
