To gain our endorsement, candidates must fill out a detailed questionnaire and participate in an interview with our PEOPLE District Committee members. The Council 4 Delegate Assembly must approve the PEOPLE Committee’s recommendations.

Be sure to vote Nov. 5 for local leaders who share our values.
