If you are interested in running for office, or you want to work on a campaign, then the Delaware Democratic Party has scheduled campaign training at the DelTech Terry Campus in Dover on October 5, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. From Democratic Party Executive Director Jesse Chadderdon:
“For the second year running, we are proud to be partnering with the National Democratic Training Center for the NDTC Blue Bench Training designed to help us build our ranks of candidates, campaign workers, and volunteers. This training isn’t simply for folks considering a run for office next fall, it’s for committee members, volunteers, even rank and file Democrats who simply want to learn the baseline skills that make for an effective campaigner. If you’ve been thinking that you can’t simply stay on the sidelines this year, this is a great first step toward playing a part in our shared progress.“
