Are you feeling a calling? Do you have a thirst to serve people? Then you need to join us. We’re not recruiting evangelists – the Republican Party is looking for candidates to serve in public office for positions in the 2016 elections.

The KGOP’s Candidate Recruitment and Assistance Committee will host a Candidate and Campaign School on Saturday, May 9, from 8 to 10 a.m. The event will be held at the KGOP office, 1911 W. Centre Ave., Ste. A, Portage.

State Sen. Margaret O’Brien and Kalamazoo County Treasurer Mary Balkema will host the event, which will be informative, energetic and enjoyable, according to KGOP Chair Scott McGraw.

“What a great opportunity for someone thinking about running for office – to learn from these two successful and knowledgeable elected officials,” he said. “I can’t think of a better way to spend my Saturday morning!”

There will be a continental breakfast available for attendees. Those interested in serving on campaigns and running for office should consider coming to this event. Call the KGOP office at (269) 323-0067 to register.
