Information Sessions on Running for Office

To assist anyone considering running for office, the Jefferson County League of Women Voters is conducting a series of Informational Interviews with county office holders focused on the day-to-day process of running for office and serving in office. March 2 we recorded the live Information Session with two Port of Port Townsend Port Commissioners, and March 5, we recorded sessions with members of the Chimacum and Port Townsend School Board and Port Townsend City Council.

We are in the process of transcribing the videos and preparing them for upload here. Stay tuned for more information.
