Thinking about running for office for the first time or as an incumbent?
Perhaps you are contemplating volunteering for a campaign?
Do you know someone who is considering becoming involved in an elected office?
Read on but first, let's read a message from an important historical figure, the 26th President of the United States.
The Man in the Arena
by Theodore Roosevelt
It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.
Now more than ever, we need people to engage in Illinois grassroots politics. That can take many forms, such as volunteering at your local GOP or working on a campaign for someone running for office. You may, in fact, be that person who is deciding to run for elected office. A common concern with many who opt to get involved with politics is to worry about not having the qualifications or the experience to become politically involved. Let me tell you the only qualifications you really need are to care and to commit to the need for change. That’s it.
