Presidential candidate and former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in LA Wednesday; Green Party nominee heads first All-Women-of-Color presidential ticket

GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA NEWS RELEASE

SYLMAR, CA - Green Party 2008 Presidential Candidate Cynthia McKinney, former Congresswoman known for voting against the war in Iraq and pushing for the impeachment of George W. Bush, will address students here at Los Angeles Mission College, 13356 Eldridge Ave (Room 101) WEDNESDAY at 7:30 p.m.

Also speaking will be Jack Lindblad, Green Party candidate for California State 39th Assembly District, and Mission College Professor and faculty founder Charles Dirks.

McKinney heads the first All-Women-of-Color Presidential Ticket in US History with running mate Rosa Clemente (website).

As a six-term U.S. Representative, Congresswoman McKinney grilled Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on the Pentagon's missing trillions, DynCorp's slave trade, and the 9/11 war games. McKinney consistently opposed funding for bloated military and secret intelligence budgets; introduced Articles of Impeachment for George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Condoleezza Rice; introduced, championed, and passed in the U.S. House the Arms Trade Code of Conduct, prohibiting the sale of arms to known human rights abusers.

Professor Charles Dirks is a faculty founder of Mission College and helped to establish the 22 year-old Sylmar campus. He was selected by the Roundtable of International Scholars at Oxford College, UK to represent Community Colleges.

Jack Lindblad is running on a Green-values based seven plank platform emphasizing stopping gentrification, more parks and transition to a solar-thermal, green jobs economy basing development on bio-regional determinism, not developers, has supported various community grass-root efforts, including providing support to forming neighborhood councils, co-authoring award-winning sustainable community plans, and revitalizing the Tujunga-Pacoima Watershed.

Lindblad (website), the only Green candidate in California running for statewide Legislative office in 2008, lives in the San Fernando Valley. He has anchored his 26 year planning and architecture practice in the San Fernando Valley with his work being recognized for excellence and innovation.
