Friday, November 6th, 2020 - 25 minutes
A journalist who spent his childhood on the Isle of Man stood in a race to join local government in Washington DC last week. Peter Bolton, who ran as a member of the DC Statehood Green Party, got more than 500 votes in the election for Ward 2, losing out to the Democrats. He's described his politics as 'radical and progressive'. In an interview recorded before the results were announced, we spoke to Peter about his Manx connection, his politics and his reason for running.
