According to Cassandra Day and Wendy Vincent, CT Green Melissa Schlag of Haddam will have to gather 8000 signatures just to find her place on November’s ballot. Further details of Schlag’s run are found at Haddam Bulletin

Schlag is credited with playing a vital role in opposing the Haddam Land Swap.

In a letter from their lawyer, Riverhouse Properties LLC, the corporation that was to swap their 87-acre wooded parcel in Higganum for the 17-acre Wildlife Management Area overlooking the Connecticut River in Haddam, informed the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEE P) in mid-April that they will not be pursuing the swap as it stands now.

  1. My name is Raymond V. Davis III. I am running for West Virginia House of Delegates district 5 as a Mountain/Green Party candidate and I would like to ask people living in my district to vote for me. I would like to as all Greens to donate to my campaign and help elect me. My website is : davisforwvhouse.webs.com

  2. If I read the article correctly, she’s already qualified to be on the November 6th ballot. The 8,000 signatures are part of a requirement for her to receive public financing. I would correct the post to reflect that. It looks like she’s doing a great job and is likely to get there.
