The 2nd* most frequent question we get at VoteRunLead is about the elected office itself. With our busy lives and lack of civics in schools, we find ourselves in the dark about what local government / local elected offices actually do everyday. Generally, what spurs women to become involved in local government is a specific issue. Once they have become involved and learned how to work in the local political process they often discover that they have something to offer the community, and are interested in its future.
Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
We are proud to release our first e-book, “The Big 4: The Ins and Outs of Local Government,” where we breakdown the roles and responsibilities of City Councils, County Offices, State Legislatures, and School Boards with a dynamic and diverse group of women holding these positions right now!
The Big 4 e-book on local elected offices will help you figure out where your policy passions get legislated:
- Care about your kid’s curriculum? Become a voice on the School Board and rally for high-quality education.
- Want to bolster downtown revitalization? Get your city government galvanized to make it happen.
- Hope to influence water policy? Head to the capital so your state can be a model for the nation.
