Learn how to run a successful campaign for public office! State, County, City, Borough, Township or School Board.
This virtual event is a collaborative effort of the LWV of Lackawanna County, co-sponsored by The University of Scranton, WNEP-TV 16, and Toyota of Scranton.

The material presented is applicable to anyone considering a run for public office in Pennsylvania.
