The NAACP Mainland & Pleasantville Branch hosted a "How to Run for Office" candidates forum today.
The forum featured a panel of seasoned election winners and addressed topics such as campaign qualifications, campaign planning and campaign funding.
The panel included state assemblymen Chris Brown (R-2) and Vince Mazzeo (D-2), Atlantic County Republican Party Chairman Keith Davis, and Atlantic County Democratic Party Chairman Jim Schroeder.
"If you're going to be successful in politics you got to stay focus, you got to decide what it is that you're about, what is the most important issue? And you know, like I said plan your work and work your plan,” said Jim Schroeder, Atlantic County Democratic Party Chairman.
"If you don't want to go through that convention process, in this state you have the ability to just go out, get enough signatures and run off the [party] line," said Keith Davis, Atlantic County Republican Party Chairman.
