Candidate Recruitment Manual

This short guide is written for party chapters, town and ward committees who are interested in recruiting candidates for office, from local offices such as Town Meeting Representative and School Committee up through City Council, Mayor, State Representative and State Senate positions. The manual will help your team explore the "who," "why" and "when" of candidate recruitment, and plan how to search for, select, and run candidates.
