Full Circle 01-20-2023; Politicts and First Time Voters

This week on Full Circle we dive into politics, some national and some local politics of East Contra Costa County in the city of Antioch. On tonight’s show we’ll hear an interview with Antioch city Council woman Tamisha Torres-Walker, fresh out of her recount victory. We’ll also hear from an advocate for the unhoused, Nicole Gardner of Facing Homelessness in Antioch, she’ll speak on the Antioch city government and the Antioch police treatment of the unhoused community. And we’ll hear from Apprentice Pamela P, as she speaks with a couple young folks who voted for the first time in the 2022 midterms.
