Local leaders paving the way forward!

Great podcast! Brings you in to the hearts and minds of rising star leaders in the Democratic Party revealing their dedication and passion to solve problems and develop a better future across their communities. All politics is local and the Honorable profession brings you into the living room of local politics and inspires us to pay attention, get involved and support our public servants.

Hope for the future !

Great podcast that showcases future leaders in the Democratic Party. If you need a break from the often depressing and demoralizing politics in DC, then this is the podcast for you. You get to hear about the work these young elected officials are doing in a boots-on-the-ground approach that really helps the listener get to know them. Inspiring!
