This week on 'SHADOW POLITICS' - Kathleen Gomez will be co-hosting with me as we welcome our guest national political columnist and analyst Mark Plotkin! We’ll be discussing latest effort to gain statehood for the District of Columbia.

This Sunday our guest is Stephen L. Kolb. Steve is an organizer, writer, photographer, videographer, actor and film maker. He is currently working on a documentary film on the movement for DC statehood.  A lot has been going on in Washington to help educate and revitalize our effort for statehood!

Our guest is Nelson Rimensnyder. Nelson is a noted political historian who served on the District of Columbia committee of Congress for many years. He will discuss the origins of the District of Columbia through the debates of the Constitutional Convention, early related Congressional action, and some reasons why the enfranchisement of DC residents was not sufficiently addressed.

We have two guests! During the first half hour we will be talking with John Kaiser, a former long time Union organizer from Des Moines who helped us at the Iowa caucuses for DC statehood. Then, the second half of the hour we introduce Mary Clare Rietz, a master of fine arts student in DAAP, who recently led a group on a walking tour called “Outside/In” through Washington, D.C. to showcase the movement for statehood. Mary is a community organizer and artist from Ohio. Join us!

Shadow Politics welcomes back a very special guest, Kathleen Gomez, who was the prior co-host on Shadow Politics. We will be catching up on what is going on in her current life away from the radio show! We have missed her!
