The Maryland Green Party Hopes for Full Recovery for U.S. Senate Candidate Natasha Pettigrew
Natasha Pettigrew, the Green Party’s candidate for United States Senate in this fall’s General Election, was critically injured Sunday morning when her bicycle was struck by an SUV. Natasha is currently being cared for at Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly.
“We are very concerned and upset about this horrible accident and the serious injuries to a brilliant young woman with a bright future ahead of her,” said Karen Jennings, party Co-Chair.
The Green Party learned of the accident through DC-area news reports late Sunday night. Representatives of the Maryland Green Party have spoken with hospital staff and are awaiting updated news of Pettigrew’s condition.
“We hope that Natasha will be able to make a full recovery,” said Brian Bittner, party Co-Chair. “In addition to her work talking to Maryland voters about her campaign for U.S. Senate, Natasha is also looking forward to completing her degree in law and spending many more years with her family. We are confident the doctors and staff caring for her will provide her the best chance for a full recovery.”
Cards and other items of personal support can be mailed to Natasha Pettigrew, 3540 Crain Highway #475, Bowie, Maryland 20716.
