SVM DEM CLUB JULY PROGRAM July 16 7PM Community Room SV Public Library
we are going to give everyone an opportunity to learn more about the subject of what it takes to run for office. We have several local seats up for grabs this year so we figure timing is everything.
Please join us in welcoming Mr. Marc O'Hara who will give us a brief introduction to Simi Valley and Ventura County voter demographics as well as a primer on volunteering, staffing, and campaigning for office. The primer will include targeting, message development, and producing high-impact direct mail.
Mr. O'Hara, a fifth generation Californian, is the founder of Precision Politics, a firm that has conducted more than 100 successful campaigns and public affairs initiatives in 23 states across America.
Mr. O'Hara's frequent political commentary has aired on CNN's InsidePolitics, the BBC, NPR and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. He is a 10-time Pollie Award winner - the Oscar of politics - for creative excellence in political advertising.
July 11 & 18 2:30 - 8:00PM
