Are you interested in running for NYC city office in 2021, but don’t know where to begin? How do you raise funds? What does a campaign spend money on? Find out during this introductory workshop to NYC Campaign Finance Board data! We will go through the data together and answer your questions about fundraising differences between incumbent vs challenger, city matching funds participant vs non-participant, or competitive vs non-competitive races. We’ll also go through campaign expenditure data to demystify the kinds of things campaigns spend money on and who they pay.
