On this episode of The Olympia Standard, we talk about the rise of independent candidates in local elections. Our guests are Olympia City Councilmember Renata Rollins and Thurston County Commissioner John Hutchings, who approach independence from the major political parties in different ways. The big question: what do we ask independent candidates (and really, all candidates) to get a better sense of their politics?

The Olympia Standard interviewed Patrick Murphy, the new superintendent of the Olympia School District, and school board member Joellen Wilhelm. We discussed how McCleary has changed the way schools are funded across the state, and how that has put Olympia schools into a pinch. We also talked about population growth, social and emotional support for students, and how to teach children to engage in respectful discourse. Don't have kids in the school system? We also talked about why you should still care!
