running for office

Do It Yourself Campaigns suggests some required reading for candidates running for office.

The decision to run is not an easy one. There is so much to consider and much to know about the political process.  From filing your papers to developing your plan and strategy, budgeting and finally executing to win on election day.  No two campaigns are exactly alike and will require unique planning and execution.

It is important that you do not make this decision lightly as you will enter upon a journey that will require organization, much determination and a good understanding of the campaign process.

Whenever possible we highly recommend that you hire professional Political Consultant, for as you will quickly learn from the books we suggest you read, your  daily responsibilities as the candidate will leave little time for managing the strategy and day to day activities of your campaign.
