Reason for enrolling in the Institute:

My reason for enrolling into the CDI was to broaden my knowledge base of the process involving political campaigns in order to achieve political effectiveness as I seek the Office of Sheriff in 2018. I further hope that the combination of knowledge gained enhances my political competencies and increase my understanding of the political arena.

 

What you found most valuable about the Institute:

What I as a graduate of the CDI found most valuable was the broad array of topics covered from ethics to campaign finances that I believe improves the overall practice of democracy through its premier nonpartisan leadership training for aspiring politicians as well as those who simply want to be more informed. I believe that the institute facilitated constructive engagement between all of its participants and presenters.

 

How you plan to move forward using the experience/information gained in the Instituteā€

I plan to move forward using the experience/information gained in the CDI by applying it towards my candidacy for sheriff. It is my belief that this institute is an essential part of democracy and I am happy to have been a part of it.
