Thinking of running for office? Workshop to show how

PORT ORCHARD — Interested in running for office? The City of Port Orchard is hosting a workshop April 27 to provide information to prospective candidates who are considering a run for local office.

The workshop, which will run from 6-7:30 p.m. at City Hall, will give attendees information they’ll need to get started, including an overview of eligibility, filing for office, public disclosure requirements and press considerations.

A panel of local officials will provide their own “lessons from the trenches.”

Four Port Orchard City Council seats will be up for election later this year. Three South Kitsap School District director seats are on the ballot, as well, as are a South Kitsap Fire and Rescue commissioner seat, a seat for Port of Bremerton commissioner, and commissioner seats for West Sound Utility District, Port of Manchester and Sunnyslope Water District.

For more information about the workshop, contact the city clerk’s office at 360-876-4407.
