Are you interested?

A strong democracy depends on engaged citizens and dedicated competent leaders willing to step forward and serve in public offices. No matter which public office–school board, village board, county board–our public institutions become stronger when interested candidates offer voters choices as to who will represent them.

Whether driven by a passion to address a particular challenge in the community, a realization that you are just as capable (or more!) than the current officeholder, or desire to provide leadership to the community on a broad scale, you will be making a difference. Serving in public office provides the opportunity to use your skills, talents, and experience to be a creative force for positive change in your community.
