What does it take to run for elected office? If you have thought about this, but have many questions about what it takes, join us at for an informative and inspiring program. Next Step Run is designed to encourage women to take leadership roles in their communities. The program at the library will begin with a showing of a short documentary film directed and produced by Pam Maus. It features the stories of four women and how they confronted the unique barriers to entry that keep women from running for elective office. The film will be followed by a discussion with New York State Assemblywoman Aileen Gunther; Jennifer Schwartz Berky, Ulster County Legislator, and Gladys Figueroa, head of the Ulster County Democratic Women, among others.
