Feature Friday – Did You Know That?

Host: Sean C O’Rourke

“Politics is not a game. It is an earnest business.” Winston Churchill

Politics.  Politician.  Want to cause a visceral reaction?  Just drop these words into any conversation and watch the fireworks blaze.  It begs the question – why would anyone want to get into this business?

Well, for those who do, there’s a gauntlet you have to run just to get in front of your welcoming electorate.  The cynic looks at these hurdles as a way for incumbents to stay in power; the optimist looks at the process as a way of pre-validating a candidate.  Either way, it’s no simple matter to find your way onto a ballot and then finance a campaign.

My next guest on Did You Know That? is Rachel Harding, an election/campaign finance law attorney who specializes in New York state.  Rachel knows the ins and outs, tricks and tricksters, and the obstacles a potential candidate must navigate to get on and remain on a New York ballot.  She also knows how much money a candidate can accept and from whom and how often.  Essentially, if you want to run for office in New York, call Rachel first.

In an election year unlike any in recent history, who better than Rachel to discuss how ballots are “made” in New York?

Be sure to do your civic duty and vote, even if it’s for none of the above.
