The Mountain Party is looking for qualified candidates to run for elected office. We are seeking candidates with a bold Green vision and the desire to run a successful campaign. We want candidates who are ready to engage voters and build our party. Furthermore, we want candidates who share the values and platform of the Mountain Party.
We are encouraging West Virginians everywhere to step up and run for office. Seats around the state are up for election, including for board of education and conservation district supervisor. Local level races are winnable, with a foundation of local Mountain officeholders to achieve even bigger wins in the future.
Candidates who start early on their campaigns have a better chance of success and that’s why it’s important that you get started right away. Filing deadlines are fast approaching; we highly recommend candidates file by January 25th.
Across the state, Mountain Party candidates will challenge establishment incumbents in upcoming elections. We need leaders with experience in public speaking, administration and planning. It is critical to have a comprehensive understanding of financial reports and budgets.
We are especially interested in candidates who are members of under-represented groups, as there is strength in diversity. It takes everyone of us to advocate for better public policy and a brighter future.
Mountain Party officeholders are currently working diligently to represent the voters who elected them. Our elected conservation district supervisors are actively working to protect our environment, in opposition to toxic fracking and pipelines. They are standing with the people in opposition to the expansion of corporate power and control. They are reaching out to voters of diverse backgrounds and are bringing together coalitions of individuals and organizations in their communities in order to improve and strengthen their local governments.
The Mountain Party has a powerful vision for a better West Virginia, but we cannot realize that vision without you.
We urge you to join us in this important effort and become a Mountain Party candidate for office today. We need your skills, energy and passion for making the world a cleaner, kinder and more sustainable place for all of us to live.
For the Common Good.
All candidates are expected to understand the terms of official recognition.
