Why should voters elect you? "Having been on the mayoral ballot six times, I have studied the dysfunction of our government and most of its agencies for the past quarter of a century. As a D.C. sovereignty activist and ANC, I determined the necessity of empowering the ANCs as mini-governmental, intercultural community centers integrating functions such as legislative clearinghouses, family counseling, drug rehabs and studies in racism and interculturalism. I have engineered a plan of pure democracy infusing the formula of F.D. Roosevelt's WPA federal arts as the structural girders (aka Stars War -- stars combat pain and poverty)."

Something voters should know about you: "I've been a teacher, student, worker, scientist, community organizer, activist, agitator, jailbird, visionary, mentor, volunteer and leader all my life. Good mayoral qualities, I say!"

Why should voters elect you? "A vote for me and the D.C. Statehood Green Party is a vote for the future. Vote for what you truly believe in for a change, rather than simply against your worst fears. Check out the Statehood Green platform (www.dcstatehoodgreen.org), and you'll see a party owned by the people (not the corporate lobbyists) that is committed to justice for all. My priority is putting public resources toward public benefit, not creating giveaways to wealthy developers and private interests from elsewhere. Stop subsidizing the rich at the expense of the rest of us! Free D.C.!"
