Generic Election

Those who are interested in running for elected office have the opportunity to learn the basics about running a candidacy through a class offered on Saturday.

The class, through the Leadership Institute program, is set for 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 123 Huvar St. The class registration fee is $35 and includes lunch.

Vanessa Hicks-Callaway, a member of the Victoria GOP, said the class was coordinated through the Victoria GOP, the Republican Party of Texas and the Leadership Institute.

The class is offered to all regardless of party affiliation, Hicks-Callaway said.

The class will go over how to determine vote goals, voter targeting, message development, fundraising tools, how to write a news release and public relations. The class is open for those considering running for public office or those who plan to help candidates.

To register before the event, go to Victoria. People can register for the class on the day of the event as well.
