Worksheet: Values Clarification

Your values are the beliefs that define what is most important to you. They guide each of your choices in life. For example, someone who values environmental responsibility may be concerned with pollution regulations, while someone who values autonomy may be interested in school choice programs. It is possible that you will be drawn to several values, however narrowing down what is most important to you will help you be authentic in communicating your vision for running for office. Understanding your values will help you recognize where to spend most of your attention, and what to prioritize in the future.
