How do our committees rate candidates on involvement?
We ask our candidate evaluation committees to investigate what has the candidate done previously in family, neighborhood, community, volunteer work, employment or public life to suggest readiness to accomplish challenging objectives? How do these activities demonstrate readiness for the challenges unique to the particular office they are seeking?
The following characteristics suggest the following ratings:
- Outstanding: Candidate has made numerous outstanding contributions requiring skills related to the office.
- Very Good: Candidate made significant contributions in challenging circumstances.
- Good: Candidate has been active and effective in many roles.
- Adequate: Candidate has a record of participation and interest in relevant activities.
- Not Qualified: Candidate does not appear to have been engaged in ways that prepare for public office.
