Fast Focus 'How can we get more people to run for public office?' Getting some new blood

May 19, 2013 

One of the best ways to get people to run for public office is for those who are currently in to do something that is not in the best interest of the community. Another way to get new blood running for public office is for those currently sitting to resign/retire.

Those who run for public office need to put forth the needs of the community over themselves. If you cannot do that, you should not run.
