Green for Greens: Mark Miller for MA State Representative
September 5, 2011 in Local Elections
In the western Massachusetts city of Pittsfield, an exciting campaign is unfolding that should capture the attention of Greens across the United States. Mark Miller, who took 45% of the vote in 2010 as the MA Green-Rainbow Party’s candidate for State Representative in the 3rd Berkshire District, is running again for the same seat in a special election to be held October 18th. The campaign is building momentum: Miller has recently been endorsed by the United Auto Workers and the MA Nurses Association.
With our help, Mark Miller can have a good shot at becoming the first Green elected to Massachusetts state government – a potential breakthrough victory for Greens across the US. Let’s not miss this opportunity: donate to Mark Miller’s campaign today to help put him over the top.
On his website, Miller declares: “A legislator’s votes should not be bought by corporations or dictated by leadership.” He lists his five major issues as building a secure, local, green economy, fairer taxes, “Medicare for All” single-payer health insurance, clean and transparent state government, and a commitment to public education. Take a look at Miller’s site for more information about why he’s running.
In 2010, Mark Miller’s 45% of the vote put him at the front of a pack of Green Party candidates who fell just short of winning state legislative races. Now, the combination of his strong showing last year, big early endorsements, and a bustling on-the-ground campaign make Miller a real contender in this special election, only six weeks away.
Mark Miller’s election would send an unmistakable message that the party for real solutions is growing. Every little bit we give (including volunteer time for those who live nearby) increases his chances of victory. Donate today to help Mark Miller and the Massachusetts Green-Rainbow Party make history!
