Business Over Beer Episode #104 with Kim Harless | Policymaking Through Lived Experience
On this episode of Business Over Beer, we welcome Vancouver, WA City Councilor, Kim Harless.
A lifelong resident of Vancouver, Kim has spent her entire adult life in service, working with non-profits and government agencies. Elected to the first ever Clark County Charter Commission as the only person of color, she has become the first Indigenous person elected to Vancouver City Council.
As a natural introvert, Kim never really saw herself in the spotlight, but she has a greater desire for the world to be a great place for everybody and won’t want to stand on the sidelines when she sees injustice or an opportunity for life to be better for her community.
“What we see is when we have people in positions of power they make decisions that they think would work,” Kim Says, “but because they don’t have the lived experience they don’t fully understand what the full impact is going to be and whether or not it will actually help anybody.”
In mythology, the raven can play tricks or otherwise disobey normal rules, hence the name Trickster. This well-balanced IPA has a light fruit, citrus and piney hop aroma with a full hop flavor. With delicately balanced malt and hops and a 6.9% ABV, this beer has truly earned its name.

On this episode of Business Over Beer, we spotlight John McKibbin and why there is a golf tournament in his honor.
When James Oneil called us this past spring to podcast from the McKibbin Legacy Classic, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into, but it seemed like a fun event and a good excuse to talk to some local business owners and drink beer. But, as we learned more about the tournament and specifically who John McKibbin was and what he meant to our community, it turned into so much more.
What we learned was John McKibbin was someone we wish we had known, someone who believed in this community as much as we do, and through our interviews with James Oneil, John McKibbin’s daughters, Jennifer and Megan, and other’s who knew John McKibbin, we found out how strongly this man felt about Community, Family and being of Service.
In this episode of Business Over Beer, we learn more about James Oneil, the founder and coordinator of The Columbia Credit Union McKibbin Legacy Classic golf tournament, and what John McKibbin, and really, what the whole McKibbin family meant to him.
This golf tournament was a way for James to honor John’s legacy, and really be there for the family after his passing. John McKibbin lived and died as a man of service and it’s important we continue to build our community the way John showed us.
In this episode of Business Over Beer, we have highlights of us on the course at Camas Meadows Golf Club for the Columbia Credit Union John McKibbin Legacy Classic golf tournament. We talked to players, sponsors, our volunteers, and we even saw a little magic. We met some great people and were once again reminded why our community is so special.
