The tables are turned on this episode of Outspoken with Joy Silver. Radio111's voice of democracy turns from interviewer to interviewee with John McMullen in the host seat. Together, they talk about the victories and the lessons that led to a largely non-traditional Mid-Term Election. While Democrats lost control of the U.S. House of Representatives, it was a slim recovery of seats for the MAGA-laden GOP. For Democrats, the opportunity still exists to gain an extra seat in keeping the majority in the U.S. Senate. Joy Silver shares her experience as someone who works in strategic planning and volunteers doing field work on important races at home and elsewhere around the country. She also talks about the importance of establishing a better foundation and structure for local political campaigns in Riverside and nearby counties in Southern California.
