Green Election Highlights: Significant Wins in California
By Scott McLarty, Media Coordinator, Green Party of the United States
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party announced several victories in the 2004 election, especially incumbents for state, county, and municipal office. The party also congratulated national nominees David Cobb and Pat LaMarche for running in a difficult election year.
"We are immensely proud and grateful to Dave and Pat for carrying the Green Party's banner, for running on our platform, and especially for using their campaign to promote our state and local Green candidates," said Greg Gerritt, secretary of the Green Party of the United States. "David Cobb and Pat LaMarche urged voters to vote Green, register Green, and support the growth of America's noncorporate, independent party. President Bush will likely use his reelection as a mandate to push his agenda further -- and Greens will lead the opposition and offer solutions for a better world for all of us."
