Connecticut Congressional Candidate backed by Women’s March CT

August 30, 2018 — Congressional Candidate Michelle Louise Bicking has recently been honored with the distinction of being an officially Approved Candidate by the Women’s March CT. Bicking is the first Caribbean-American woman of color to run for Congress in Connecticut, and is promoting a progressive platform of Peace and Justice, versus a long-term incumbent, Joe Courtney, who is the recipient of much support and many contributions over the years from manufacturers of military weapons. Bicking is a fervent Pro-Choice supporter as well as advocate for pay and gender equity and LGBTQIA rights. Additionally her platform distinguishes her from Courtney in calling for Eliminating Mass Incarceration and Student Debt, and Building a Peace Economy, as outlined on her website and on Facebook.

Greenfield says "you're welcome" to Delgado for appropriating Green New Deal

New Paltz, NY – On Wednesday night, August 29th, at the New York League Of Conservation Voters 19th District Congressional candidate forum in Callicoon, to which Green Party candidate Steve Greenfield, the only candidate with an extensive, specific, and fundable environmental platform, was not invited, Democrat Antonio Delgado's opening statement was nearly word for word what Greenfield had been handing out on a leaflet on the sidewalk just before the event, that described a sweeping renewable energy infrastructure development plan, right down to the title "Green New Deal." Delgado had never mentioned it before, in over a year of campaigning, and despite the sudden change of rhetoric, remains opposed to The Off Fossil Fuels For A Better Future Act, HR-3671, the only pending legislation approximating the initiation of the idea, and specifying a project timetable.
