Candidate Bio Template

Posted on 8 May 2007. Filed under: Assignments |

Each candidate will have a PAGE on the Prez Campaign blog/site. Copy & paste this template (less these instructions!) onto a new PAGE. The “parent” (right hand column options) is “Candidates”. The title should be the candidate’s full name. The “slug” (right hand column options) should be the candidate last name. When you have completed this to the best of your ability today — save as a draft. Do not publish!
