Given a local campaign, say for city council, I have the following questions:
Albeit a rough estimate, how soon should a local candidate begin publicly campaigning?
How many days per week does the candidate need to work on campaigning? Assuming the candidate has expenses (rent, bills, etc.), how would the candidate work full time on a campaign and work at the same time to cover bills and expenses? Because of this issue, I would imagine people quit working in order to campaign, which makes me wonder how they pay rent and bills.
