Thanks for visiting this website. I am running for Congress to represent the people of the 1st District from Connecticut on the Green Party line during the 2016 election. I want your vote and your support because I honestly believe that I am the most qualified candidate to serve you in this important office. My experience working for economic justice, ecological sanity, ballot access reform, voting reform, and real campaign finance reform over many decades gives me a unique prospective that is now needed in our state and country (see my ABOUT page on this website).
The time has come for real change. My slogan during this election is: MORE CHOICES, MORE VOICES. The two-party system dominates and distorts our political possibilities and our political choices. We need new ideas and new programs to create a better, more effective and democratic government.
Check back to this website in the near future for further information about this effort to make a change and make a difference.
Please Vote Clean and Vote GREEN!
