This is a recording of an interview with Ashton Simpson, who is running for Metro Council District 1. He is the only candidate running for this position. However, he believes that voters should know about all the candidates on their ballots. We asked him the same questions we asked the candidates for other Metro Council Districts. We included as many of the questions as time allowed in each interview. This interview is also available as a video recording. A list of all the video and podcast interviews is available on the League of Women Voters of Portland website, https://lwvpdx.org/2022-primary-election-video-voters-guide-podcasts/.
