Politics doesn’t have to be only for lifelong politicians.
Our goal in hosting this nerdy event is to uncover the process for getting elected to local office. This is not a talk about policy, this is a talk about the political election process.
Also, Edwin Peacock is very funny and I hope we all give him a hard time about not wearing socks with his loafers to our Mayoral Forum in 2015. I dubbed it #nosockpeacock and I think it cost him the Mayoral election… 🙂
Event: Fireside Chat – How to get into politics w/ Edwin Peacock. Tickets.
Outcome: You’ll walk away with knowledge on how to run for political office in Charlotte and how to organize a basic campaign. This is not a political thing – this is how to file, how party backing works, how to budget for a campaign, how to view polling, etc.
Class size: 40. We believe the smaller the group, the more actionable items you can get.
Presented by: AT&T (AT&T has no political affiliation with anything, so don’t freak out – they’re just our partners for creating meaningful events that drive Charlotte forward.)
