What We’re Looking For
Interested in running for office as a Democrat? Want to advocate for Democratic values in elected office? Well, you’re at the right page! Here’s what we’re looking for in a Democratic candidate:
- Great candidates are involved, both in their communities and in the Democratic Process, and approach leadership with a servant’s heart.
- They know the issues and they know the community they desire to serve.
- They have demonstrated a commitment to others by volunteering for other Democratic candidates, volunteering for the Party, and by voting in Democratic Primaries.
- They embody Democratic values and principles in their day-to-day lives, and are not planning on running as a Democrat just because Democrats make up the majority of voters in the community they wish to serve.
- They may serve on the DeKalb County Democratic Committee.
