Why should voters elect you?
"Vote for peace: nonviolence, social justice, environment, democracy. Greens don't just preach campaign finance reform; we're actually practicing clean election campaigns now."

What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"The most urgent issue is nonviolence. End the harmful 'war against terrorism' and replace it with an intelligent foreign policy of peace and justice for all nations. Nonviolence also implies social justice: good schools, decent housing, health care and equal rights for all. Alternative energy; clean water and air."
