elected Independent GreenParty Arlington County Chair and Virginia State Indy Green Party Central
As the Indy Green Party candidate, I am petitioning to get
on the ballot for Arlington County Board of Supervisors for these reasons. We need a strong, reliable, and proven advocate
for Columbia Pike Rail on the ballot in this election. The Independent Green Party - my party - and our Indy Green Party
candidates for local, state, and federal office have advocated for Columbia Pike rail for decades. Indy Green Party
leaders, Indy Green Party Arlington neighbors, and Indy Green Party leaders have participated in decades of meetings to work
for Columbia Pike Rail. The history of those meetings, and the reasons why we need Arlington's Columbia Pike Rail is
well documented. Please see www.StreetcarNOW.org. Also visit http://www.columbiapikeva.us/streetcar-transit/.
For Arlington County getting Columbia Pike rail is another battle in the century long fight between big oil, big
auto, big asphalt, and big polluters. As a Green Party candidate, I want to show the way to a sustainable green
future for Arlington County transportation, Smarter growth, and an ever greener Arlington. Please join me, and the
Independent Green Party today. Be an Independent Green Party candidate for local, state, or federal office, and part
of the positive green change.
