San Diego Republican Party is recruiting 400 people to run for local office to shape the community
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – There are nearly 1,000 elected offices in San Diego County with half of them up each two year cycle so just over 400 are up in November.
To fill those positions, the San Diego GOP is recruiting 400 people to run for local office to shape their community.
The goal of the Republican Party of San Diego County is to contest every office up in November. About half of them are already represented by a Republican and they want to re-elect those, but the other half need Republican candidates or the Democrat stands to win by default.
Chairman of the Republican Party of San Diego County, Tony Krvaric, discussed the recruitment effort with KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego. Krvaric explained that only a small portion of elected offices get the attention of the public, but there are hundreds of smaller offices that make just as big a difference in people’s lives, if not more.
Krvaric said many smaller offices like city council, school board, hospital board, water boards, fire districts, and planning groups are in need of Republican candidates to fill them. They are unpaid offices, but can work as stepping stones and career building jobs for future political aspirations.
Krvaric has listed all the local offices in need of Republican candidates on his the San Diego Republicans website. To check it out, click here.
