The Democratic Committees in several North Hills communities are playing host to a free training program for party members interested in running for political office and their supporters.

The training session, which is scheduled for 7 to 9 p.m. on Jan. 31 in Marshall Township, will cover topics such as communicating with voters, recruiting volunteers and managing campaign finances.

Organizers note that numerous positions at the local level are up for election in 2019, including spots in municipal government and school boards that serve as decision-makers on important issues such as taxes, economic development and education policy.

The program is sponsored by the Democratic Committees in Bradford Woods, Franklin Park, Marshall and McCandless but is open to residents in all North Hills communities.

To sign up to attend, contact the McCandless Democratic Committee at 412-719-5276.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
