The Municipal League of King County announced that they are seeking Candidate Investigators for their 2012 evaluation program.

“Our program provides the region’s only independent, non-partisan, non-agenda driven evaluation of local candidates, and we would love your help in recruiting volunteers,” reads an announcement. “Every year, a committed group of Municipal League volunteers meet directly with our local candidates for public office to answer a fundamental question for voters: ‘how well could the candidate do the job?’”

If you are interested in being a part of this process, the Municipal League of King County is currently accepting applications for their 2012 candidate evaluation committees on their website: www.munileague.org.

The candidate evaluation process is intended to determine a candidate’s fitness for office, and this year’s volunteers will spend three Saturdays in June interviewing, researching and ultimately rating candidates based on four criteria:

  1. Knowledge
  2. Effectiveness
  3. Character
  4. Involvement

The Municipal League’s process is a unique experience that provides volunteers with an up close look at the people, issues, and ideas that will shape our community’s future. The Municipal League process has been described as a “boot-camp for citizens” and is as engaging for our volunteers as it is instructive for King County voters.

According to their website:

The Municipal League is a volunteer-driven, nonpartisan, nonprofit (c4) organization that works toward better government in King County, Washington. Our mission is to promote government that is open, effective and accountable, and to improve the caliber of public officials and the quality of public decisions.
