This week, we speak first with State Representative Gael Tarleton, who is running for Secretary of State. Alongside the governor and the state attorney general, Tarleton has mobilized a response to the Trump administration’s sabotage of the United States Postal Service here in the state. We’ll hear her demands to put a stop to the dismantling of our postal infrastructure, and she also list of ways that you can get involved in the fight.
Then, if you’ve been wondering what’s at stake in this year’s state, congressional, and legislative elections and about where you should be putting your time and resources, we have a show for that. Join our panel to hear how you can make a real difference here in Washington in 2020.
