11 Indy Green endorsee/nominees for congress lead by doing. Thanks to the Indy Greens and their allies, who collected thousands of signatures to get on the ballot, every Virginian will have a third option for congress this year. They have a record number of congressional candidates on the ballot. Indy Green congressional candidates urge citizen action to improve participation in American democracy. Save positive policy from apathy.
INDEPENDENCE, VA Independent Green congressional candidates Dave “for Rail” Gillis, Janet Murphy, retired Navy Captain Ron “for Rail” Fisher, retired U.S. Air Force veteran John Kelly call for Virginians to join their campaigns. Indy Green endorsees Kenny Golden, Jeff Clark, and Jeremiah Heaton believe this is the year they can be elected. They invite concerned citizens to get involved. Visit neighbors door to door. Make calls. Be a fundraiser. Write letters to the editor. Be an Independent Green precinct, or block captain.
About 50% of all elections in the United States today, whether local, state, or federal have only the incumbent on the ballot.
“We need More Candidates, and Less Apathy.” Says Floyd Bayne the Independent Greens 7th Congressional District Chairman, and candidate for congress.
“Join our campaigns this year. Get on the ballot, and run yourself next year!” – Retired Navy Captain Ron Fisher.
“The Indy Greens are Virginia’s Original Tea Party. We’ve been advocating for fiscally conservative policies and balanced budgets for years. There is enormous positive energy this year.” Carey Campbell, (IG) State Chairman.
“A Green world is possible. Where every citizen votes. Where every citizen steps forward and runs for office, and most important keeps an eye on how their tax dollars are spent. Elected politicians keep spending your money. So better you vote, and run, and keep a close eye on them.”
“The time is now. The place to make a positive difference, and offer positive solutions is on the ballot as a candidate.” John Kelly, Independent Greens 3rd congressional district Chairman, and candidate for U.S. House of Representatives.
Joe Oddo is Virginia’s Independent Green’s campaign coordinator adds.
“The Indy Greens believe every citizen has the potential to be a great
candidate, and government watchdog. We run for congress this year to urge other Virginians to pick up the Independent Green Tea Party pro republic, pro democracy banner, and run next year for 2011 for House of Deleagates . Join Us Today.”
“It’s time for the bold to take action. Your support for my campaign will send the message that politics as usual will no longer be tolerated.” Kenny Golden
