Heidi Hall: My Transition from Candidate to Supervisor

  • 828 W. Main Street Grass Valley, CA USA (map)

Hosted by Nevada County Democrats as part of their First Tuesday Educational Forum

Location: Peace Lutheran Grass Valley, CA
828 W. Main Street, Grass Valley

Heidi Hall worked in state government for years before deciding to run for Congress against Republican Doug LaMalfa. Although she did not win, she took many lessons with her when she decided to run for District One representative on the Nevada County Board of Supervisors. Unlike her opponent, Heidi made no secret of the fact that she was a registered Democrat, although the seat was nonpartisan.

Last June, she won the election after a hard-fought, grass roots, volunteer-driven campaign. She was sworn in as a member of the Board of Supervisors in January 2017. 

At our next First Tuesday Educational Forum presented by the Nevada County Democrats, Heidi will discuss her experience in transitioning from political campaigning to governing and the lessons she has learned in her journey from hardscrabble politics to making decisions that affect all constituents regardless of political persuasion. How difficult has the transition been? What has most surprised her? What has most frustrated her? What is it like to be in a closed session with the Board? What is the interaction like among the Board members? How do disagreements get resolved?

Find out in this informative and exciting presentation.
