Learn How to Run for Public Office


For anyone interested in running for local county office, the Penn State Extension is offering a workshop called “Toss your Hat in the Ring.” Attendees will get an overview of Pennsylvania local government and the responsibilities of a township supervisor, a borough council member, or a school board director – presented by a Penn State Extension Educator. Topics include how to file a petition, reporting campaign expenses, and other important information.

The workshop will be held from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 23 at the Media Municipal Center. The snow date is Wednesday, Jan. 30.

Registration is $25 per person and is available online here. For more information, contact Peter Wulfhorst at (570) 296-3400.
