Our mission is to make it easier and affordable for citizens to run for local, county, and state offices, and to connect voters to candidates in a new way.
Democracy is for those who are involved, they are the citizens who lead us into the future, whether it is for the state legislature, Mayor's office, city council or school board. We believe if you don't get involved, you give your power to those who will.
In 2020 and 2021 we will be seeking funding through grants, crowdfunding and donations. We believe that Candidates Platform will be able to help take the money out of politics, take the fear out of running and bring all information needed for the voter to form an educated opinion, all on one platform.
The key to a true democracy is an educated voter not one who guesses in the voting booth. Candidates Platform gives easy access 24/7 for voters to know the candidate and to Know Your Vote.
Lori Kilpatrick grew up in a small rural southern farming community. She joined the army right out of high school where she met her husband. While traveling base to base she started a family as an Army wife and achieved a degree in education.
Her husband's family had settled in Douglas, Arizona and Lori's family retired from the service and settled in the area. As a small business owner, Lori decided to run for AZ state Senate. Even though she lost, she realized that her commitment to making a difference and changing what she saw as corruption within the establishment would not keep her from trying again.
Running for County Supervisor of Cochise County, AZ she once again encountered the difficulties of running against an incumbent. We are honored to have her on our show tonight as we discuss the perils and pitfalls and the accomplishments of running for public office.
