Why I am a Candidate

I am a candidate primarily to educate voters about the Green Party.  Without candidates, you may never hear about a political party that advocates for the environment, economic and social justice, and peace.

Why am I a Green?

A Democrat until age 50, I registered with the Green Party in 2001.  For me, Greens represent the best of what Democratic Party leaders used to stand for.

The New Deal of the 1930’s established government programs and policies designed to improve conditions for people suffering in the Great Depression.  Today, Washington politicians on both sides of the aisle support never ending war, corporate profits over the environment and tax breaks for the wealthy.  The voices of working people are rarely heard above the deafening sound of money.  It is time for a Green New Deal.

I’m just beginning to put together a campaign for the June 2018 primary election for Congress.

Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
