In MA, Green state rep. candidate ‘expects to win’ in 2011, after getting 45% in 2010

From the Berkshire Eagle:

PITTSFIELD — Mark C. Miller, the Green-Rainbow party candidate who challenged state Rep. Christopher N. Speranzo last November, formally announced he’s a contender for the seat Speranzo has to give up if he’s confirmed for the Central Berkshire District Court clerk-magistrate job.

In an announcement to supporters Thursday, Miller said he plans to run for the 3rd Berkshire District seat, which covers most of Pittsfield.

Miller told The Eagle that he expects a tough race, but he also expects to win — in part because this campaign will be better organized and have more volunteer help than his previous one.

The fact that he commanded 45 percent of last November’s vote, for a campaign he essentially ran alone, tells him that he has a real chance this year, he said.

    Good luck to him. I was really excited to see him do so well last time. I hope he gives the establishment Hell come next time,

    Well, I’m in a dilemma here. By this candidate’s arrogance.
    He clearly doesn’t understand the power of the reactionary duopoly he’s up against. He could and probably will do worse the second time. There is no guarantee in third party politics that one will do better;quite the contrary. Now a dem or rep has a good chance to do better the second time around.
    I’d say let’s go in and try to help his campaign with a Zeese and/or PLAS campaign, but when he loses, he just might blame that & not his arrogance.
    He might win though because it is MA & it is a fairly low level office. He shouldn’t take credit for that though.

    Do you plan to contact him and at least present your strategy to him?

    I don’t know. It is a dilemma to me. & until my campaign gets some significant support & naysayers like Tom rule, nobody is going to listen to me anyway.
