Hi there, Together, we’ve recruited over 3,800 progressive candidates for local office! We surpassed our original goal of 2,012 candidates within a day of officially launching, so we’ve decided to reach for more than double that, and aim for 5,000. Can you help us continue to spread the word, and find others to join this movement by sharing the Candidate Project on Facebook and Twitter? Share on Facebook Share on Twitter We were optimistic, but we never expected this response. More than 3,800 candidates, 700 recruiters, and 3,000 volunteers have already committed. Will you help us build even more momentum by sharing the project with your friends and family? Share on Facebook Share on Twitter And keep checking back on the Candidate Project website – we’re constantly adding new features and resources to help you become a force for change in your community. Best, Carlos Odio Director, Candidate Project PS: In the new year, the next phase of the project will kick off with some of the best online training and resources ever designed for local campaigns, based on your feedback.
