Derek Kitchen is the state senator representing District 9 as well as running a local restaurant called Laziz! Derek is running for re-election and we dig into some of the bills he has been working tirelessly to get passed. If you care about women’s health, restorative justice, the local housing crisis, and true collaborative democracy -Derek is your guy! As you listen, keep in mind, the more diversity we have in our local senate the greater level of transparency there will be in the discussion and passing of various bills. Sunlight is the best disinfectant and Derek is a crucial part of those bright rays of democracy for our state. Please listen and follow Derek at @derekkitchen and check out derekkitchen.com. There are numerous ways to get involved, and this is a campaign we believe is worth it.
