Early Endorsements

In an effort to make the playing field as fair as possible for all candidates, the 21st Legislative District will not be making any endorsements before candidate filing is closed. We look forward to vetting all candidates and will be endeavoring to make all endorsements as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, candidates are welcome to come and speak at one of our general meetings. Email endorsements@21dems.org to arrange to be placed on the agenda.

To simplify candidates work load, we are using the same endorsement questionnaire as the county.
