Web Exclusive: Olene Walker and Making Change
Shauna Lake: You must have felt like you were effecting change, and that must have felt very empowering.
Olene Walker: Yeah that’s right. In addition to the usual job of elections but we brought in what we know as motor voter. It meant a lot of changes in that direction and then after the bush administration and the effort into looking at the elections we reevaluated where we were going and moved more to have an organized election department; where we really worked on issues. So it was a great time. And the fact that both parties sort of worked together, even as Lt. Governor and governor it made it a very rewarding experience. I feel that in the past few years that there has been more conflict that they care more about party often rather than the state but again that's looking back as everyone does, and thinking that times may have been better then. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I would encourage more individuals, especially women to get involved.
