2. The New York State Working Families Party, The Rural Caucus of the New York State Young Democrats, the Cortland County Democratic Committee and the St. Lawrence County Democratic Committee are sponsoring a candidate training workshop to recruit, train, and elect the next generation of progressive leaders. The “Running to Win” workshop will be held from 11:30AM until 6:30PM on Saturday, January 21 (the day immediately following Inauguration Day) at the Cortland County Democratic Committee Headquarters, 129 Port Watson Street, Cortland, NY 13045.

There is no cost for this training workshop but attendees will be responsible for the cost of their lunch.
