Just in...Nonpartisan campaign workshop for local candidates

This is surely a first in Norwood. We’ve just learned that Councilperson Victor Schneider is independently hosting a 2-hour February workshop for Norwood residents, regardless of political party affiliation, who are thinking about running for local city offices this year. A veteran candidate of campaigns for both mayor and council, Mr. Schneider will do a presentation and answer questions covering topics such as the filing deadline; campaign finance reporting; recruiting support volunteers; campaign signs and literature - almost everything you ever wanted to know about running for office but didn’t know who to ask. It’s free, of course, and here are the particulars:

Date: Saturday, February 10, 2007
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Location: Norwood Health Dept. at 2059 Sherman Avenue

2007 Norwood races:
city auditor
law director (thanks to our commenter for reminding us to add this one)
president of council
wards 1 through 4 council seats
3 council-at-large seats

1/21/07 UPDATE: Dean over at the Cincinnati Beacon is so impressed with Councilperson Schneider’s nonpartisan workshop for Norwood candidates that he's made it the subject of today’s editorial. He's even posted the letter he’s sent to Cincinnati council members urging them to follow Mr. Schneider’s lead.
Will at least one of them take the challenge? Maybe this is an idea whose time has come. Read all about it at:
