Former Bothell Mayor Joshua Freed is running for governor in 2020 and centering his platform around the homelessness crisis. He is building a campaign in the Republican primary geared toward what he believes is a moderate consensus in Washington State. He aims to provide an alternative to Washingtonians who feel overtaxed, a feeling he believes was reflected at the ballot box this past November.
At the 2019 Re-Wire Policy Conference, DJ Wilson had the opportunity to sit down with candidate Freed to discuss his campaign, his professional evolution from family therapy to real estate development to politics, and his policy vision for Washington State.
