We recap Election Day. What do the results mean for progressive Seattle, which approved a billion-dollar transportation package and an election reform plan? Seasoned campaign veterans and former Seattle mayor Charley Royer join host Joni Balter and weigh in on low voter turnout and the city's shift to district-based Council elections. Plus, State Sen. Pramila Jayapal (D-37th) reflects on her first year in Olympia, where she is the only woman of color in the senate, and discusses efforts to raise the state minimum wage and address affordable housing.
