INSTRUCTIONS FOR COMPLETION AND SUBMISSION
Candidates are required to answer all the questions on the Candidate Questionnaire. If the question does not apply, enter N/A. The candidate should download the form, save it with her name added to the title, and fill it out. The questionnaire must be completely filled out, legible, signed by the candidate, and submitted as an attachment to an email sent to both Co-Chairs of the NWPC Sacramento Endorsements Committee:
Michelle Collins at email@example.com
and Patty Gainer at firstname.lastname@example.org
DOWNLOAD: SAC NWPC Questionnaire 2021 2.0.pdf
Candidates may also send any campaign literature or additional information on personal background (occupation, education, family, community involvement, accomplishments, etc.) that may help the endorsement committee understand political positions, qualifications, and chances for election. However it is desirable to keep additional information to a minimum (no more than 3-4 pages.)
CANDIDATE INTERVIEWS & ENDORSEMENT
After the Co-Chairs review the Candidate Questionnaire, eligible candidates will be invited to an interview with the Endorsement Committee, which may be conducted in-person or virtually via Zoom. The interview is required before the Endorsement Committee can recommend endorsement to the NWPC Sacramento Board of Directors and membership.
PREVIOUSLY ENDORSED ELECTED OFFICIALS
NWPC does not endorse challengers to a previously endorsed elected official seeking re-election unless the elected official has performed in conflict to our goals or is no longer a viable candidate. NWPC Sacramento reserves the right to re-interview previously endorsed candidates.
Questions about the endorsement process may be directed to Ms. Collins or Ms. Gainer at the email addresses listed above.
