Monica Polanco of the Hartford Courant recently profiled the Connecticut Green Party’s slate of candidates for state legislature, Colin Bennett, Rae Johnson, Ben Wojan and Nicholas Payne:
The Connecticut Green Party is running four candidates for statewide seats and seats in the General Assembly. They include a youth counselor, a retired guidance counselor and a dual contender for state comptroller and the state Senate’s 33rd District
“I think the overarching theme is they’re average citizens,” said Tim McKee, party spokesman and member of its national committee. “I think they’re going to try to talk about important issues: the economy, certainly social justice issues and clean government.”
Hannah Vahl of the Middletown Press also wrote an article about Rae Johnson, Green candidate for State Senate District 9.
“There isn’t any common sense being used right now in decision making,” Johnson said about her motivation for running. “It doesn’t seem like it’s a government by the people, for the people. It’s time for a change.”
