We all know people who watch the news all day and then complain about what our politicians are not doing. Many of those who grumble never actually do anything to make things better.

But then there are people like Charlee Childs who run for office and affect political change on their own terms.

Childs is a native of Baltimore with family ties to Maryland's Eastern Shore.

She ran for a seat on the State Central Committee in Baltimore County's 10th District in 2018.

UMES 30's host, Dr. Joshua K. Wrights talks to Childs about what it was like to run for political office as a regular citizen, as well as the outcome of her race for office.
