Democracy for America to Support Local Candidates

George Wenschhof Bio

Democracy for America (DFA) is well known to progressives who have seen their support given to candidates for Congress and the successful Barack Obama for President campaign. It is important to realize DFA also provides assistance to candidates running for local office. City of Frederick, Maryland Democratic candidates for Mayor and Alderman, as well as other candidates for local office across the country, should take note of the following information. These candidates may wish to consider applying for consideration for assistance.

I just received a email from Charles Chamberlain, Political Director for DFA who provided the following information and asked that I help in providing this information to candidates.

Candidates who are interested in receiving a DFA endorsement can apply at:

Candidates who receive a DFA-List endorsement receive a national organization of support which will aid the candidate in many ways. The questions the organization considers when endorsing a candidate are as follows:

  • Will the candidate move the progressive movement forward in their community?
  • Does the candidate have substantial support from our local members?
  • Do the candidate's positions and policies fit into the broader progressive movement?
  • Is the campaign people-powered and the candidate working to win?

If you are a candidate for a local office, take a few moments to check out their website and decide if you wish to apply for their endorsement and assistance in your campaign.
