Campaign Bootcamp

Contributed by Eleanore:

Sunday, June 25th, Paulene and Dean & Eleanore attended Campaign Bootcamp in Shingle Springs. This event was to train anyone interested in running for office, working on a campaign or volunteering. The event was sponsored by the El Dorado County Democratic Party and the Democratic Women of El Dorado County.


Christine Pelosi led the program, which covered:

  • Identify Your Call to Service
  • Define Your Message
  • Message Box Usage
  • Know Your Community
  • Build Leadership Teams
  • Raise the Money
  • Connect with People
  • Mobilize to Win
  • You Won! Now What?

One of the main things we got out of the program was that to win going forward, Democratic messages need to use the economic argument, not just the compassionate argument. Money speaks to our opposition, so if we want to garner their support, we need to speak their language.
