Former Green candidate Laurel Schmidt got 10,000 votes last time around, but has tale of woe in a note boosting current candidate.
I’m having a wine and cheese to raise money for Nancy Wade in Congress this Friday at my home: 203 Parkview, Riverside, IL. Call me if you can make it! Fri, October 5 at 7:30pm –
As some of you know too well, I ran for Congress as a Green Party candidate in the 3rd Congressional District in 2010 and got over 10,000 votes. This should have been enough to keep me as an established party candidate, but state Dems redistricted me out of the 3rd and cut off the Green Party’s established status.
I’ve run into this before, in Oak Park, after I wrote a column about being Republican in Oak Park some years back. Green friend bemoaned Green problems even then. Makes the naive person wonder if Being Green isn’t as important as Keeping Power.
