Hey You, Run For Office As An Urban Republican

Bayside Patch Blog: Have you ever wanted to run for public office, but didn’t know where to begin?

The Queens County Republican Party is reaching out to a new generation of elected officials by holding a ‘Candidates School’ at the Adria Hotel in Bayside from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

“Running for office is never easy and we have some of the most experienced campaign operatives in the state to help guide these recruits, most of who are novices,” said Chairman Phil Ragusa on the QGOP website.

The half day program will feature seminars on raising money, message development, social media outreach, and CFB compliance.

Many notable Republican luminaries will be presenting as well as taking questions.

  • City Councilman Dan Halloran
  • Former U.S. Senate candidate Jay Townsend
  • State GOP Finance Director Jason Weingartner
  • Urban Elephants blogger Daniel Peterson


Anyone interested in running for office anywhere in Queens, or looking to network with other urban Republicans are all encouraged to attend.

You can find more details at www.QGOP.org. To reserve a seat, please contact the Queens GOP at (718) 690-3737 or by email at queensgop@gmail.com.

This notice is brought to you by the activist Democrats at Queens-Politics.com to help foster competitive elections throughout our borough.
