Green to run in 10th Congressional
Green Party member Jeremy Cloward has announced his intention to run against
Rep. Ellen Tauscher (D-Alamo) in the anticipated 10th Congressional District
special election. The 10th District includes portions of Alameda, Contra Costa,
Solano and Sacramento counties.
President Obama has nominated Rep. Tauscher to serve as Undersecretary for
Arms Control and International Security in the State Department. If confirmed,
a special election to replace her is expected to be held in Fall 2009.
Cloward, if elected, plans to introduce legislation designed to pave the way
toward a "more just and equal society." More info on the Jeremy Cloward
Congressional campaign can be found at www.jeremycloward.com.
