Episode Info:

This podcast is rooted in the belief that local politics and elections matter. Going all the way back to episode number two, Stop Worrying About Trump and Get Active Locally, with Pierce County Councilman Derek Young, we have advocated for folks to pay more attention to local government here in Tacoma. Filing Day has passed and the 2019 primary will go down in August. In November, we’ll elect City Council Members, Port Commissioners, and School Board Directors. It’s time to get informed about who is running now.

Our friends over at Citizen Tacoma will have in-depth interviews with each of the candidates after the primaries. In the meantime, this episode is what we do best on Nerd Farmer–a barbershop chop-up about who is running this election cycle: Evelyn brings the PDC reports and Desiree brings the real talk.  

*Note: this episode begins with a very special personal announcement, #YNWA

 

Guests:

Desiree Finch, FUSE Washington

“Auntie” Evelyn Lopez, co-host of Crossing Division & writer of True Tacoma
