From the Log Cabin Democrat (read the full thing here):
Former United States Postal Service supervisor and military servicemember Lewis Kennedy of Conway has been chosen to represent the Green Party on the upcoming November ballot.
Kennedy will vie for the U.S. Congressional District 2 seat being vacated by Rep. Vic Snyder. The campaign is Kennedy’s first foray into politics, but he believes he is ready for the challenge.
“This is a democracy. Everyone is qualified to run,” Kennedy said. “I know I can represent the people of this district well.”
Kennedy is facing tough competition in Democratic candidate Joyce Elliott and Republican contender Tim Griffin but is not concerned about his lack of political experience.
“The fact that I can better represent the people of this district is more important than qualifications,” Kennedy said.
Although this is his first time on the ballot, Kennedy hopes his experience as a government employee, as well as his military service, will help him win over voters.
Kennedy retired from the United State Postal Service as a supervisor in 2007 and spent several years as a servicemember in the National Guard, U.S. Army and Army Reserves.
