Governor’s Council Interviews Coming Soon
I’ve been working on editing up some interviews for you, and will be releasing some clips in the next few days from my interviews with Democratic Primary candidates for Governor’s Council, Marilyn Petitto Devaney (I), and Mara Dolan. I had a great time chatting with them both, and you can catch the entirety of both interviews on the podcast next Saturday. Paid subscribers can listen a week early, starting tomorrow, July 9!
