The Bee is helping to organize a free workshop on what's involved in being a candidate for elective office.
The session is scheduled July 10 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Salida branch of the Stanislaus County Library.
The speakers will include veterans of many local campaigns and an accountant who specializes in campaign finance reporting requirements.
Advance registration is strongly urged so sufficient materials will be available.
To sign up, contact the Modesto Chamber of Commerce at 577-5757 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This workshop is open to anyone who might be considering a run for office — in fall 2010 or beyond.
