Think about running for office.

The 2018 election is still more than a year off, but it's not too early to start thinking about running for office.

So much is on the line in the next election -- the future of our planet, public education, union rights, health care, and more. No one can afford to sit this one out.

That's why if you've ever even dreamed about running for office, this is the time to jump in.

Take the first step by attending "Running for Office 101," featuring state Rep. Kristy Pagan, D-Canton, talking about the ins-and-outs of getting started. Mike McCollum, a member of the House Democratic Caucus staff, also will speak and provide the House Dems' perspective.

This session will help you decide whether to run, determine which office is best for you, and explain the process of getting on the ballot.

The event, which is free, t will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, at party headquarters, 8028 Grand River, Woodland Plaza Suite 7, west of Brighton.
