Political Authenticity: An Interview with Elizabeth Brown

A rising figure in Columbus politics and current City Council President Pro Tempore, Elizabeth Brown brings a very honest and open perspective to this conversation. While many Americans are inundated with negative perspectives on politics, Elizabeth grew up with an honest and authentic father, who also happened to be (and still is) an elected official. Elizabeth offers useful perspectives on community engagement, finding your passion, and figuring out what life holds for you.

Overall I found this conversation highly engaging and several of my own views on politics were challenged as a result.
