Pennsylvania's primary voting is on May 18th, so Marcie Lightwood sat down with Mary Erdman of the League of Women Voters organization here in the Lehigh Valley who recently held the 10th "Running for Local Office" workshop on how to become a political candidate here in the Valley with help from resources to the paperwork process.

Marcie then invites Allentown attorney Zachary Cohen to share his experience from a candidate workshop and how it helped shape his run for Lehigh County Judge in the Court of Common Pleas.
