Run DNC ft. DJ Marcus

November 6, 2019
We're taking it nationwide (but always with a little Weber county flavor) this week as we sit down with former Utah Democratic Party Vice Chair and Democratic National Committee member Marcus Stevenson. Marcus explains how the DNC works, what changes he worked on while on the committee, and how the work at the national level actually helps Democrats counties like Weber.
 
We also do a short recap of Monday's Proposition 3 debate with Kingmaker Oscar Mata and Pinkies Up, Thumbs Down.
 
Also stay until the end so you can hear us plug our new sponsor, Ashley Wolthius and the Elements of Real Estate! https://www.theelementsofrealestate.com
