Answering the Call: Local Candidate @MaureenShaw — #KatieSpeakShow Ep137 6/30/2018

In brief: Continuing my (totally on purpose I swear) series on local and state elections — the kind I’ve been yelling about on here and before this with Hal Sparks on Chicago’s WCPT — with an actual local candidate! Friend of the show Maureen Shaw is taking her own advice and jumping into the race! She describes the process, her platform, what it’s like running in the age of Tr*mp. And we discuss ways people who may not be ready to run, but want to get involved can do so. #VoteLocal

Note: This show is available to stream and download for free so it can be accessible for everyone. If you’re able, consider becoming a supporter for as little as $1/month at PATREON or making a one-time donation at Thank you!
