Wow, young people involved in city politics? It’s been a long time. Campaign activist Rowan Kane, vice president of the Greater Bridgeport Young Democrats, shares this communication the organization has been sharing with candidates for City Council seeking the group’s endorsement.
Thank you for taking the time to seek the Greater Bridgeport Young Democrats endorsement for city council and for volunteering to run for office.
We are a group that is working to engage and inform a new generation of Bridgeport voters. As Democrats, we believe in a government that is effective, progressive and compassionate. As citizens of Bridgeport and its surrounding towns, we believe in this vibrant community and the enormous potential it has to grow and succeed. This year we will be endorsing candidates that will uphold these values and we will work to support these endorsed candidates throughout their campaigns.
The attached questionnaire is designed to elicit your views on the wide range of issues you would face as a city council member and to inform us about the experience and values you would bring to the position. Your answers to these questions will be shared among our group and should be considered public. We will be voting to endorse candidates at our July meeting and will inform you on our decision shortly thereafter.
We look forward hearing from you on the issues that matter to our community and to working together on the challenges and opportunities our great city faces together.
Please complete the attached questionnaire and submit via email to Rowan Kane, GBYD vice president, at email@example.com by July 3, 2017. Alternatively, you may submit your answers via Google form by following this link. You are welcome to submit additional material that supports your candidacy.
