#200 When Your Reinvention Leads You to Run for Political Office (But You Lose) (Claire Campos-O’Neal)
April 7 2023
“Just follow your curiosity,” says expert reinventor Claire Campos-O’Neal, daughter of a first generation Mexican-American who ran for Texas State Representative for House District-51 in 2022. “If you want to know about the school board, just go to a school board meeting.” For Campos O’Neal, following her curiosity took her from volunteer work to politics to real estate and beyond. “Women don’t self-nominate as much as men do and they run because they care about their community, not because it’s a stepping stone to something else.” In this conversation with CoveyClub founder Lesley Jane Seymour she shares what running for office without a political background taught her. Listen in to learn her tips for stepping into the political scene as a civilian and what she learned about making your voice heard.
