The Illinois Green Party is looking for a well-qualified candidate to run for U.S. Senate in 2020.
Instead of waiting for someone to come to us and then seeing if that person is a good fit, we have decided to set out our qualifications first, and then see if you, or anyone you know, would like to apply for the role.
You must be legally qualified for the office (30 years of age or older, a U.S. resident for at least 9 years, and a resident of Illinois).
You should be friendly, outgoing, cooperative, have good communication and “people” skills and an ability to clearly articulate Green Party positions on the issues. You should have a suitable work and political activism background, with no “skeletons in the closet.” Prior campaign experience not essential but would certainly be a plus.
You and your campaign must be committed to helping the Green Party grow. You would be expected to build your own campaign organization, but the party and the campaign would each help the other. This would include sharing of contact and donor lists, etc...
