CITIZEN MARIN: Citizen Marin is inviting the candidates to join us to promote their candidacy, network, and build support for healthy government. Citizen Marin does not endorse candidates, but our network among citizen leaders throughout the county gives candidates a platform to get out their message. It also allows Citizen Marin to identify those county-wide and regional issues that influence every jurisdiction and hear about candidate’s stands.
