(Lori Piotrowski) – Come every January, resolutions are made, then broken. But imagine the results if you had some help to keep that resolution! No, I’m not talking about joining a gym. Been there, done that. Multiple times.
This is a resolution to not only improve you, but improve your city, county, or state. And you are the key.
If running for office headed the top of your New You To-Do list, the Nevada Policy Research Institute is offering an intensive, candidate training course on state policy. The course will run 16 weeks and it is free!
Geoffrey Lawrence, NPRI’s director of policy, says that this course will educate candidates about the structure of the Nevada government and free market policy solutions to the state’s most pressing problems. You will learn to substantively address the major policy issues confronting the Nevada Legislature and the best way to clearly articulate a conservative/libertarian policy agenda.
Attendees will meet at the NPRI office at 6:00 p.m. on Mondays, beginning January 9, 7130 Placid St., Las Vegas, NV 89119. Register by sending your RSVP directly to Geoffrey Lawrence at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling (702) 222-0642.
