Bakersfield City Councilman Harold Hanson will be Wednesday's guest on "Off the Press" from 2 to 3 p.m. on bakersfield.com.

The political talk show will be hosted by Bakersfield Californian government reporters and co-hosts Nicole Parra and Russell Johnson.

Johnson is a former Bakersfield City Council member and government affairs consultant. Parra is a former assemblywoman and political science faculty member at Cal State Bakersfield.

Hanson is a long-time banker and he represents Ward 5 on the Bakersfield City Council. Hanson is facing a challenge from two other candidates — Jeff Tkac and Ryan Nance — in November's election.
