Four guests (yes it was a full room) join Marguerite to discuss the recent candidate filings. This is an honest conversion with a progressive view of politics in Tacoma. The guests are all active in local politics which means that some of them have endorsed candidates or are working for candidates. They all disclose that at the beginning before dropping a wealth of insight about the races and local politics. If you want to know what's going on in Tacoma politics this year, but also hear great phrases like "air quotes mayor," then this episode is the place to start. (Actually, the episode prior to this one is the place to start Then come back here to finish.)
