This is a recording of an interview with Zach Hudson, who is running as a Democrat for Oregon State Representative, District 49. He is the only Democrat running for this position in the Primary Election. We invited the Republican candidate for this position, Randy E Lauer, to be interviewed as well, but he was not available. All the candidates running for state representative from either party were asked the same questions. 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/.
