Dr. Edward Shadid, Green Party candidate for House District #85
On July 25, 2010, following the GPOK’s 9th Annual State Convention, the Cooperative Council of the GPOK met. After extensive discussion, the party agreed to offer to endorse Dr. Shadid’s independent campaign for State House District #85.
In making its endorsement, the party asked that the campaign make a special focus on discussing Green values (particularly the 4 pillars of the Green Movement: ecological wisdom, social justice, grassroots democracy and non-violence), have a strong local focus, and make a special effort to reach out to marginalized and new voters.
For more information on the campaign, please visit voteshadid.org.
