It’s a Baltimore tradition to say that the primary election is the only election that matters, even though the general election is in November. The political establishment loves it when people say this because then they don’t have to worry about voters having real choices to challenge them. We believe that in a true democracy, the people should take advantage of every chance they have to pick their leaders from as many options as they like. Why have the right to vote and not use it?
I will be on the ballot this November, along with Andy Ellis representing the Green Party, a grassroots political party whose goal it is to bring real, community-driven change to our democracy. Coming out to vote for anybody in the general election is the first step to making all of our elections matter and shaking up the broken political system which has relied on people’s non-participation for far too long. We hope that between now and then we will earn the vote you cast.
