This is a recording of an interview with Elizabeth Steiner Hayward, who is running as a Democrat for Oregon State Senator, District 17. She is the only Democrat running for this position in the Primary Election. We invited the Republican candidate for this position, John Verbeek, to be interviewed as well, but he was not available. 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/.
