Oregon Labor Candidate School Application
The Oregon Labor Candidate School is looking for union members who are seriously considering running for office in the near future, or who would consider running if a vacancy opens up. It is recognized that many labor supporters may not have an opportunity to join a union at their workplace, so OLCS provides space for both union members and union supporters to run successful campaigns. We are interested in our graduates running for a variety of offices at the local and state level.

This application is for classes in Lane County in 2018. We will meet one Saturday a month from March-June to cover campaign fundamentals like fundraising, voter contact and communication. Class dates are 3/10, 4/14, 5/12, and 6/9. Please make sure you can attend every class before applying.

We are looking for concise answers. This form will time out after 30 minutes. Save your answers often so you do not lose them. To complete your application email me your resume or work history in a separate document to sara@oregonlaborcandidateschool.org.

If you have any questions about our expectations, or are having trouble with the application, please feel free to contact me.Thank you for applying and I look forward to talking with you soon!
