Episode 2: What it’s like to run for local office

June 20, 2017

Today we talk to Erik Hanberg, a Metro Parks Tacoma commissioner, about what it’s like to run for an elected office. What does it take to run for office?

It’s more than just yard signs and speeches. So what are candidates doing right now as they get ready for the primary? How much do they need to raise? If you’re interested in hearing about what a local campaign process looks like from the inside, you might be interested in this episode!

Note: Erik mis-stated that volunteers can help with elections. The Pierce County Auditor clarified: “All election work is performed by paid employees. The ‘extra hires’ are paid between $14 and $18 per hour. The only volunteers are Political Party Observers.”
