With two school districts and the entire city council up for elections next April, potential candidates have an opportunity to attend a workshop that should help them in their campaigns.

Sponsored by the Evanston Community Foundation, the Public Service Challenge training workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, at the Joseph E. Hill Education Center, 1500 McDaniel Ave.

Jennifer Moran, director of the foundation’s Leadership Evanston, says the workshop “provides crucial information to understand the roles, the election law, and the nuts and bolts of running a campaign.”

The workshop, she says, is open to any interested citizen wishing to learn more about how to be a candidate or how to run an effective campaign.

Co-sponsors include the League of Women Voters, NAACP, Evanston Chamber of Commerce, and District 65 PTA Council.The workshop costs $30 and includes lunch.

Additional information  is available on the ECF website.
