On Episode 259 of the Mama Bear Dares Podcast, Leslie and Tesi have a conversation with Adrienne Martini, who holds a District 12 seat on the Otsego (New York) County Board and is the author of the book SOMEBODY’S GOTTA DO IT: Why Cursing at the News Won’t Save the Nation, but Your Name on a Local Ballot Can. The conversation with Adrienne is informative and inspiring…and so much fun. The women talk about the Covid-19 and the importance of local government response, about Adrienne’s run for office, and about how, as a middle-aged, cisgender, white woman, Adrienne focuses her privilege and her Mama Bear agency on policy and winning a seat in local government. The conversation is poignant, fun, and filled with hope and joy! Check out complete Show Notes on the Mama Bear Dares website.
