Are you thinking about running for City Council? What about School Board? Or perhaps a State House seat? The Democratic Women’s Club of Florida has a policy for endorsement of Federal, State and Local candidates who support the DWCF platform.
What Does DWCF Do for Candidates?
One of DWCF’s objectives is to get Democrats elected – especially women.
Democratic candidates aligned with our DWCF Platform are offered advice and support through our DWCF Candidate Resource Committee and considered for endorsement by our organization through the DWCF Campaign Screening Committee. Candidates endorsed by DWCF are eligible to be considered for financial donations from the DWCF Political Committee.
DWCF can help candidates in several ways:
Endorsement by DWCF begins with our Campaign Screening Committee. Candidates who would like DWCF to endorse their candidacy, should read the DWCF Platform and complete and sign both the DWCF Request for Endorsement form. After completing these forms, please send them to Nancy Hurlburt, DWCF Campaign Screening Chair at: firstname.lastname@example.org. These completed forms will help us consider you for endorsement. You will be notified of your endorsement status by Nancy Hurlburt.
Campaign donations for DWCF endorsed candidates are determined by a separate entity; the DWCF Political Committee. Endorsed Candidate Survey Forms will be shared with the DWCF Political Committee. The DWCF Political Committee will consider donating only to campaigns of candidates who are referred by the Screening Committee and have approval by the Board. DWCF Endorsement does not imply automatic approval for disbursement of funds to endorsed candidates.
Grassroots Campaign Committee: Candidates who receive DWCF endorsement are eligible for phone bank and canvassing (if available in the geographic area) assistance. Using the candidates’ VAN list DWCF volunteers are available to call and/or canvass Democratic women for one full week per candidate, per election, to get out the vote. Once you have received endorsement contact Mary Lou Woods, Grassroots Campaign Committee Chair at email@example.com
