This is a recording of an interview with Catherine Thomasson, who is running as a Democrat for Oregon State Representative, District 45. She is one of two Democrats running for this position in the Primary Election. No Republican candidate is running for District 45. We invited the Democrat running for this position, Thuy Tran, to be interviewed as well, but she 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/.
