Bringing Democracy to the People With Amanda Litman
"So Amanda Run was founded on the day of trump's inauguration. So tell me a little bit about the organization and why you founded it. So I worked for Hillary's for two years before that for President Obama for the Florida Governor's race in for nonprofit and between the week after election day I, got a facebook message from somebody I went to college with Hey Amanda. You've worked in politics. You know this world I. Want to run for office because of trump president seems like anybody can do this. What do I do and I did? Not have an answer for him. I did not know what to tell him to go. He wanted to be more than just a volunteer and more than just voter. If he wanted to actually lead, there was nowhere that would be guaranteed to take this call. So I reached out to a whole bunch of people. One of whom became my co-founder that's incredible operative, Dross Morales for Cudjoe we wrote a plan we built a website and me launch run for something. As you said on inauguration day we thought we'd got maybe a hundred people who wanted to run for local office instead in the first week, we had a thousand as of today we're up. To more than fifty one, thousand young people across the country who've raised their hands just say I want to run for local office what next so we've built an organization that does best that we find more people who wanna run things like School Board City Council and state legislature and we help them through the process I think it's so cool and one of the things I love so much about run for something is that you proudly self identify as progressive and that you came from the Obama and DNC campaigns and I, think there is this kind of lake mistaken belief that you can't be progressive and be a traditional. Democrat. So what are your? Thoughts on that lay that out for US unpack that a little bit. How does it work for us? I think we define Progressive Democrat really broadly, we look for a set of shared values shared belief that everybody deserves access to affordable healthcare that everybody's sort of access to education that we need to fight for working families that we need to protect organized labor that we need to protect it and for the environment, and we can share those goals and disagree on the tactics that we need to accomplish them. But the only way we get to really implement those tactics or even have a starting place to decide a meme is to win elections. I. So, for us a Democrat or progressive in New York might look a little different than Democrat in Vienna right. But we gotta be willing to win everywhere to run everywhere on our set of shared values and we also know that for most people especially for local elections. Partisan identification is the way they make their voting decision they look at the ballot and they say, this one's a democrat. Cool. That's all I know about them. So for us, right really important to support people running under that party line knowing that that's the way the most voters make up their minds. It's so smart and it makes so much sense because every district of restate the. Issues are different and I think people forget that when we live in these big cities that when you look at some place, a state that isn't sort of a metropolitan city, you get such tunnel vision about what the issues are in the context of your life that you forget that it could be different in the context of someone else's life and especially because what we only work on local elections. So Library School Board, Water Board, University Board and Community College Boards and Yes State House and State Senate. The issues that you're focusing at these levels is often a little bit more but also a lot less partisan it how keeping water clean how are We getting trash picked up are we funding our roads and our schools? The tangible delivery of those issues makes it so that what it means to be a progressive on them are things like my favorite example here we work for the Coroner Candida in Jefferson County. Colorado which factor more than thirteen hundred counties they'll elect corners he was reading on a progressive platform. The thing that he wanted to ensure was that after death trans people were not being this gendered, which was something that the current coroner was doing, and that is a really important thing because the way that gender is recorded on death certificates affects crime statistics and homicide statistics and suicide statistics. All of which are really important especially as they relate to a community that is disproportionately represented in things like suicide homicide. So as you think about what is the progressive value look like an issue like a coroner's office? That's one of the ways in which you can show up and it was a really interesting way to see the way that our values can trade themselves into progressive policies and all kinds of offices

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott restricts mail-in ballot drop-off locations
"Tony Cruz with Jim Ryan Jim first. I mean, silly. Not at least get your reaction when you heard that both President Trump and Melania Trump Have Kobe 19 water. Things like that. They're in Texas boy that puts an interesting spin on this on this election cycle. Yeah. I mean, this thing this being 2020. It's almost hard to be surprised by anything that sure that certainly was surprised to hear that the president and first lady had tested positive. And and now we're ah, is sort of selfies leading at the White House waiting to see what happens. Next on Lena at this point is what the doctor Sean Connolly the White House position, He said that they're both doing well, you know, well. Doesn't say much about symptoms or anything else, but now it you just have to learn more of the coming days. What's precisely happening with him? Yeah, and and the impact to to your point as well. Let's talk a little bit about Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Pretty controversial situation. It would look like what it comes to voting in accounting and more than two million people. We just had ours expanded from eight Here in Jefferson County had eight locations now to 20, at least to get ready for November 3rd which probably still isn't enough, But what about there in the great state of Texas? Well, A lot of the counties have been adding drop off locations for early bounce fallacy is that you know, the request for mail in ballots have been skyrocketing. This year's people try to stay away from the polling places to avoid exposure to Over 19. So people are asking for these ballots. They're receiving them. They're filling them out. They have the option to mail them back in. But in the interest of ensuring that everything goes smoothly, A lot of voters are taking them to drop off locations. You drive through a location. There's an election worker there to take it from you. You don't have to get out of the car, even not to risk exposure that we'd drop it off and drive away. Hey, Harris County Court. Houston is had just added 12 of these drop off locations Travis County, where Austin is at added form or to their area. Both Dallas Tarrant County where Dallas and Fort Worth are. They each had one drop off location anyway, but the governor now has ordered that each county may have no more than one drop off location. What do Travis County and Harris County have in common? While they're run by Democrats and liberal Democrats at that, And you know the suspicion on the part of the States Democrats is that the Republican governor is trying to to mess with the election, trying to influence it unfairly. But Governor Abbott says he's simply trying to ensure that there is a boat security that there isn't the kind of fraud that could come with having multiple mail in ballot drop off locations. I'm sure that's very controversial. So with even the one location tell us about security. What does that look like? Yes, the will part of his thie announcement I made yesterday. The order that issued yesterday was that each of these drop off locations would have to allow at least two representatives of each candidate's various, You know, people who are running on the ballot, not just the presidents, but the down ballot candidates as well. Each would be allowed to have two representatives at each of these drop off locations also to ensure Vote security to ensure that the drop off locations or say are there are boats secure. You know, it's the same thing that President Trump has been talking about earlier this week, his insistence that in Pennsylvania some trump supporting ballot to our poll watchers were not allowed inside. Well here. Now that the governor is saying that poll watchers must be allowed inside, of course. Local election of officers in the various counties have said that that's always the

Why this candidate for West Virginia governor isn't even the focal point of his own campaign
"Stephen Smith was already running an unconventional campaign for governor of West Virginia. It's opponent fide of the people effort under the banner. West Virginia can't wait the campaign. Its Policy Proposals and budget have been discussed and written by the people. In fact. Smith isn't even the focal point of his own race for governor. Even Corona virus has an upended the campaign Smith says the pandemic has only enhanced their message. But will it work? If Smith who has to win the Democratic nomination in June defeats the incumbent Republican in November Smith. Thinks so hear him explain. Why Right now Stephen Smith thank you very much for coming on the podcast? Thank you so to be here so I've been watching your campaign now for a while since October when we met through our mutual friend justice guests and he wanted me to meet you because he was saying this. Guy Steven he is running a different kind of campaign. And you laid it out to me at that dinner. Talk about the kind of campaign. You're running so our campaign starts with a simple light. Yeah we actually don't think that one governor is the problems we actually believed that never in America district Sunni Non West. Virginia history has a politician in the answer politician League wars years ago or the teachers strike two years ago that we exchanged from the bottom up. So that's how we built our campaign starting Almost three years ago we having conversations with folks all across the state saying what would it look like? What would it take to run a campaign where the ended it just win one office but we won something closer to a people's Government in West Virginia? And that's what we're doing now a a people's government talk more about how this campaign is working because it it's not just hey on Seba Smith running for Governor and you've got volunteers around the state who are running around and getting people to vote for you. It's a little bit more involved in that right. They were to show people that were doing something different. We have to do it with our actions. Not just our word so the first thing I did was build county volunteer teams in all five counts tourist state so in every county. There's a West Virginia can't wait. Volunteer team is not Jefferson County for Stephen Smith Jefferson. County can't wait then. We realized that some people are gonNA come into politics based not from where they live but from their identity as a coal miner or color Muslim are students or social worker so we will thirty nine constituencies teams veterans can't waste seniors can't rate so last piece of the puzzle was New Year more than why can't and five fifteen or twenty people to run the same kind of kept a race that you're so look for people would say no pack money promised Across the picket line promises Behind from a debate never hunch down and again we thought fifteen twenty twenty five people that would be a revolution West Virginia here. We are eighteen months later. There are ninety four of us running together up down and importantly we're running all different kinds of offices and council to Congress and Senate and everything in between we also represent the people of West Virginia in a way that is far different adverse truer than the current I'm ninety four. Candidates are disproportionately black. Disproportionately women disproportionately veterans disproportionately educators. Came directly from the Teachers Strike Movement. Were disproportionately waiting members. The LG Clusky unity and together. We represent something more like what are states. And that's what wrath of these people I mean. You're you're running in. The Democratic Party are all the people who are running in all of these positions. The all these elected hopefully elected physicians. Are they also all democrats from the beginning of this campaign? We've announced strategic read but also morally. We had a duty to build the people's government not just based on the people only go Democrat. Which is a fairly small group of people in West Virginia? We defeat curious about inviting independence. I needed people who voted for the president. Met doesn't mean compromise our values on the contrary. What it means is looking. For the biggest boldest issues that could get and that's what we found in this campaign that on issue after issue there was a democratic position that you could find the state capital a Republicans Find the State Capitol and then it was a bit consensus. Common Sense. Position wasn't being argued by corporate arms of the Democratic or Party. And that's where we find our strength and that's why we broken Joe Mansions Record for the most.
