Recruiting & Supporting 2020 Candidates / Challengers for Marin BOS

Three seats on the Marin Board of Supervisors will be decided in the March 2020 election, including District 2 (Katie Rice), District 3 (retiring Kate Sears), and District 4 (Dennis Rodoni).

We have strong incumbents in place. Long-time Mill Valley City Councilwoman Stephanie Moulton-Peters has announced plans to run for the open District 3 seat and Alex Easton Brown is a challenger District 4. It could end there.

Many believe, however, we get better government when races offer more than one candidate. So we’re hosting this educational event to bring people together to discuss:

  1. Issues: What are the issues in each district? in the county?
  2. Who is thinking about running?
  3. How can we recruit and encourage qualified candidates, especially in races with only one declared candidate?
  4. What does it take to run for Supervisor?
  5. Resources: What's needed? What's available?
  6. Q&A about running for the BoS?

Elections and voting are two core elements of democracy. We get the best elected officials and an informed public if we have strong campaigns with opportunities to examine the issues respectfully.

Baseball provides five important lessons for an election.

If you’ve thought about running or if you have ideas about recruiting and supporting good candidates, please join us. Democracy grows stronger as more people participate.
