Our C.E.P.T.A. event for tonight will be a perfect intro to anyone interested in learning how the process actually works in going from private citizen to serving your public through elected office. One of the first steps, after actually deciding to run for office, is to getting your petition papers and going around town collecting signatures from your parties registered voters.
What we at C.E.P.T.A. will provide is the help and place where all candidates, Democrat or Republican can get their petitions and learn what steps they will need to do right up to the actual election day.
For the Candidates this will be an informational event where we will have on hand the Lehigh County Voter Registration dept. heads, Mr. Tim Benyo and Mrs. Terri
Harkins. They will give a program explaining all the steps candidates must follow in preparation for their bid for public office.
For the general public, please come out to meet and talk to the candidates, ask them questions, keep them honest and if you like them and their ideas you will be able to sign their petition papers so they can go on to potentially be your next elected public servant.
Light refreshments will be available.
