Our Revolution Medford Announces Endorsement Process for 2019 Medford Municipal Elections
Our Revolution Medford endorsement requests for the November 2019 municipal elections will open on Sunday, June 23rd. Endorsement decisions will be announced in August and will be based largely on a commitment to the Medford People’s Platform. The platform has been published as of June 23rd via multiple communication outlets, complete with mechanism to sign on. It proposes policy action in eight key areas of our lives: housing, the environment, safe communities, labor, education, transportation, tax structure, and public engagement.
Who is eligible for an Our Revolution Medford Endorsement?
Candidates for any Medford office must first sign on to both our platform and our anti-corruption candidate agreement to be considered for endorsement. OR Medford will endorse candidates whose campaign goals align with our platform. Announced and unannounced candidates for all offices in the November 2019 race are eligible to seek an OR Medford endorsement between June 23rd and July 13th.
If I agree with part of the finalized platform but not the whole thing, am I eligible for an endorsement?
Where can I learn more about the endorsement process?
Here is our detailed process with timeline for the 2019 municipal elections. To join the endorsements committee, inquire about the process, or to seek an endorsement from Our Revolution Medford, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your interest.
What does an Our Revolution Medford endorsement mean?
Our Revolution Medford will support all candidates it endorses through online announcements of support and communications encouraging our members and the public to vote for our endorsed candidates. In addition, the Medford People’s Platform coalition led by OR Medford organizers will assist in the following activities in support of endorsed candidates:
- Organizing issue-based or candidate-focused events, including fundraisers, where legally permissible
- Recruiting, training, and retaining volunteers for canvassing (door-to-door communications), textbanking, and phonebanking
- Leading slate-inclusive canvassing, textbanking, and phonebanking events
OR Medford membership includes experienced organizers who have managed successful state-level candidate and ballot question campaigns and spent thousands of collective hours knocking doors, phonebanking, and event planning for candidates and issues important to us.
We look forward to receiving and reviewing your endorsement requests!
