If you’ve read the local papers, you’ve heard a lot these past few weeks about candidates for office, but not nearly enough candidates are stepping forward at the local level.
There’s good news and bad news. The good news is, there’s plenty of time to gather signatures and launch a campaign for state representative and state senator, with months before the signature deadline.
The bad news: the Party enrollment deadline is quickly coming up this Tuesday, February 27th. What does this mean? If you’re unenrolled and want to run as a Republican (or Democrat) you must change your party registration (by clicking online here), before Tuesday, February 27 th.
Why is this important? It’s virtually impossible to win as an Independent or Unenrolled candidate, even at the state representative or state senate level, due to the volunteer and financial infrastructures that go along with enrollment in a political party. But many people are registered in neither political party.
So, if you have any inkling that you might be even considering running, take two minutes to email us, and we can walk you through enrolling if needed—or simply visit the website here.
We also want to remind everyone that now is the time to get started for candidates who want to run for the state legislature.
We’ll be having another candidate and campaign volunteer school on Saturday, April 14, so please mark your calendars. We also need your help to identify good potential candidates to step up and run.
What have our opponents done on Beacon Hill this cycle?
Most of our legislature voted to drastically increase their own pay. For some, it was the first vote they ever took.
Many cow-towed to political correctness and voted for the dangerous Transgender Bathroom and Locker room law.
Many have co-sponsored the misnamed Safe Communities Act, to make Massachusetts a Sanctuary State.
Many voted that pregnancy has nothing to do with unborn children, or in favor of a vulgar and graphic sex-ed mandate.
Many voted for higher taxes, and against the common-sense MassHealth reforms our governor proposed. The list goes on and on and on. 2018 could be a banner year for challengers in Massachusetts, but you can’t beat someone with no one.
