Shadow Politics, June 3, 2018
VOTE LOCAL DC - Vote Local DC is an initiative started by native Washingtonians Jacob and Matthew Clark. For too many years, younger voters have not been much involved in elections and politics in the District of Columbia. Most young voters are not even familiar with the political process or the candidates and this often discourages younger DC residents from voting. These young community organizers want to connect other young people with the candidates who are running for office in 2018. By interviewing politicians, the Brothers Clark want to give new voters and the citizenry of Washington, DC a clear path and opportunity to become more familiar, get involved and *VOTE* on Primary and General Election Day! Your involvement can, and will, make a real difference — for us all!
Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.
We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
