The 2018 midterm elections saw an unprecedented wave of female winners. This is a phenomenon that not only saw big wins in Congress, but in local elections all over the country. Our guest for this podcast episode is Dr. Rita Ali, who is currently running for City Council at Large in Peoria, Illinois. Dr. Ali discusses her reasons for running and her political platform. It was a pleasure chatting with this amazing and accomplished woman. Her local primary election is this Tuesday, so if you are in the Peoria area please remember to vote. We would never tell you who to vote for, only to implore you to exercise your right to vote. Send a comment to us at our Facebook page or on the website. As always, thank you for listening!
