Considering Running for Office? Check This Out

The North Coast People's Alliance (NCPA)Press release from the North Coast People’s Alliance:

The North Coast People’s Alliance (NCPA) will present a workshop titled ‘Run, Serve, Lead! – Introduction to Civic Engagement’ on Friday, June 9th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Arcata Playhouse (1251 9th Street, Arcata). The event is free of charge.

The workshop will provide fundamental information for anyone considering running for office, applying to serve on an appointed board or commission, volunteering for a local campaign, or simply becoming a more actively engaged citizen.

County Supervisor Mike Wilson, Arcata City Council Member Sofia Pereira, Eureka City Council Member Kim Bergel, McKinleyville Community Services District member Mary Burke, and Northern Humboldt Union High School Board member Dana Silvernale will participate in a panel discussion and audience Q&A session, and NCPA volunteers will share important resources and information pertaining to civic engagement.

Refreshments will be available for purchase at the Playhouse concession stand.

The North Coast People’s Alliance evolved from Northern Humboldt for Bernie, a grassroots campaign that helped to secure a local landslide victory for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary, with 70% of Humboldt County Democratic voters casting their ballot for Sanders – the highest margin in all of California. After the primary, NCPA members decided to continue to work together to build an organization to empower ordinary people to become more engaged in political processes.



  • The Apache Warrior

    Sounds more like a Liberal, Socialist disobedience workshop to me, especially since it has bernies name attached to it. THANKS, BUT, NO THANKS. Have enough brain dead people around now trying to run for office.

  • Oh great, just what we need, more little Socialist wanna bees running for office. Isn’t our local governmental bodies already messed up by young people who have no experience or qualifications?

    Thank you North Coast Socialist Workers Party of Bayside.

  • Thinking allowed

    I sincerely doubt anyone, no matter how ordinary, showing up who holds a different political goal will be ’empowered’ except empowered right out the door. The holier-than-thou set have become very scary in their techniques and values.

    I’m sorry if they honestly want to encourage civil interaction but the origins of this group suggests otherwise.

  • So the you teabagers, you let the libs win ?

  • Missing Crackers

    White Whine served up daily on comment boards across the country.

  • This is EXCELLENT news! It’s the bottom-up way to CREATE CHANGE!
    I will be out of town and will miss it. Hope they will do another one, maybe in Fortuna or Garberville.
    I especially encourage Bernie supporters to attend! Learn how YOU can help!! Besides, recruiting and educating candidates, there are many levels and positions for motivated, engaged people.

  • Hey some guy named Bawreck or Barock somebody went from college to buying a 8.1 mil house making around 400K a year with those gigs. I need to sign up.

  • Of course its free otherwise there would be no attendance! News flash the revolution happened in November. Hopefully they discuss what socialism means because they eventually run out of other peoples money…

    • With the current POTUS I think you mean Fascism not Socialism!!! Fascism is his stock in trade nothing more & absolutely nothing less!!!
