About Us

Democratic Perspective is brought to you by the Verde Valley Independent Democrats, a working group founded in 2011 to bring a broad spectrum of accurate information — moderate, progressive, liberal, and Democratic — to the general public. We examine issues and ideas from different perspectives that challenge the prevailing political wisdom of both parties. Democratic Perspective is based in beautiful Sedona, Arizona and can be heard at 8:00 a.m. every Sunday morning on Mellow Mountain Radio, 106.5 FM and 780 AM. The show is co-hosted by Stephen Williamson and Karen McClelland with frequent guest hosts.

We promise not to shy away from controversy and engage in a serious and fact-based discussion of issues. Discussions heard on Democratic Perspective are backed by supporting information linked from the Democratic Perspective website. And, of course, listeners can write and ask us where we get our facts. Although we are a Democratic group, we invite Independents and Republicans to join our discussions. The show provides a regular, vigorous discussion of issues and interviews with politicians and political thinkers from all over Arizona and the United States.

We hope to contribute to the national discussion of political and social issues through our weekly radio program and our website. We hope that listeners who find the show useful will support it economically.
