Several steps forward in Wisconsin – Chicago and DC are next!

From Jill Stein for President:

Several steps “Forward!” in Wisconsin

Dean-Loumos.jpgCongratulations are in order to Dean Loumos and Ledell Zellers, two Madison, Wisconsin Green Party members who were elected yesterday to the Madison School Board and the Madison Common Council, respectively!

There was good news in other parts of Wisconsin as well: Rae Vogeler, a former Green Party candidate for the U.S. Senate, was elected to the Oregon School Board. And the voters of Fort Atkinson and Whitewater both joined the Move to Amend by voting overwhelmingly (84% and 77%) for the We the People Amendment (see http://www.WethePeopleAmendment.org).

Ledell-Zellers.jpgWe thank all of the Greens who ran for office in Madison this Spring.

Thanks to CJ Terrell, Damon Terrell, Barbara Davis, Christian Hanson, Sarah Manski, Leslie Peterson and Hawk Sullivan, each of whom ran strong campaigns we can be proud of. Sarah Manski, who won her primary with 45% of the vote, withdrew from the race shortly after the primary for family reasons, yet still won a third of the general election vote from diehard supporters.

Now on to elections in Chicago and Washington DC! If you haven’t already checked out LeAlan Jones in his congressional campaign in Chicago (election day is April 9) and Perry Redd in his run for the DC City Council (April 16), take a look.
