Run 4 Office
The public is invited to the Douglas County Premiere of the documentary Charlie vs Goliath, at the upcoming Run 4 Office event on Thursday, January 11th from 5:30 to 8:30 pm at the Douglas County Annex Building auditorium on Douglas in Roseburg.
Doors open at 5:30 pm and the showing will start promptly at 6 pm. After the documentary, campaign consultant, Larry Taylor will discuss what you need to know to run for office in Oregon. This will be followed by a chat with former county commission candidate Rita Harris about what she learned from running for office locally.
Charlie vs Goliath is a documentary based upon Charlie Hardy’s run for US Senate in Wyoming in 2014. Although he did not win the seat, Charlie, an outsider with little money, was able to beat the establishment and secure the Democratic Party nomination. Even more importantly, he demonstrated what good ole grassroots organizing can do.
This event is free and open to everyone. Those who have ever considered running for office are particularly encouraged to attend.
This presentation is being put on by Citizens Education & Advocacy (CEA), with sponsorship from the Douglas County Democrats and Common Ground Coalition of Douglas County. The groups hope that the Run 4 Office event provides anyone with the tools needed to run for office and that Charlie vs Goliath encourages people to do so.
