In 2009, Green candidates won 35% of municipal elections that they entered. Given this figure, it’s not hard to see that with more Greens running in more local elections around the country, the Green Party could become America’s third major party in the course of a few election cycles. Here’s a shout-out to cities where Greens are leading the way by running more than one candidate in 2011 elections, roughly arranged by population. Will your town be next?
Cheri Honkala, Philadelphia Sheriff
Brian Rudnick, Philadelphia City Council District 8
Bill Barry, Baltimore City Council District 3
Douglas Armstrong, Baltimore City Council District 14
