Nathan's Take
A viewpoint from the BCDP Chair

Can you believe it is December?! Have you volunteered to join in one (or all four) of the local Christmas parades we're joining this year?

We all know what that means.

Maps will be out soon to show us what has changed with redistricting. It also means that candidate qualifying petitions can be picked up, and lots of local campaigns will begin to kickoff.

Have you considered running for City Commission, School Board, Register of Deeds, or Property Assessor? Reach out to Candidate Recruitment Committee chairwoman Sue Dubois with questions about available offices.

If you aren't going to run for office yourself, then what is your strategy to elect more Democrats? Have you thought about asking a friend? Will you be volunteering to help phone, text, or knock doors for emerging candidates? Will you be writing checks or donating via ActBlue?

Get ready to hit 2022 running! I'll see you all at the upcoming Christmas parades!
