A little something different this week. Below you'll find an essay I wrote just as soon as my lights came back on after Hurricane Ida. It was published earlier this week on Gaianism.org and quickly republished on three other sites. I thought you might like to read it too. As far as the campaign goes, we are resuming our team meetings and "meet the candidate" drop-in sessions via Zoom. Now I've got to run off and make an appearance before the Orleans Parish Republican Executive Committee! — Bart Everyone Experiencing the Wrath of Ida and the Bliss of Gaia Continue reading

ASBURY PARK, NJ – On the surface, the concept of gentrification seems like a wonderful process that begins pumping money into a poor community in the hopes of driving new population and business growth. You might start seeing some newer homes on some blocks, a handful of new stores, etc. District 11 Assembly Candidate Dominique Faison is speaking out on how the gentrification process is actually hurting Asbury Park residents.

We are excited and grateful to have the support of Allegheny County Councilwoman, Liv Bennett , in our race for Pittsburgh City Council! Councilwoman Bennett is an ardent fighter for housing justice and racial justice in our region, both major concerns of our campaign. "Pittsburghers deserve a working-class representative who will fight for them. I'm endorsing Connor Mulvaney for City Council District 4 because I believe his is that fighter. A vote for Conner is a vote for unions, a vote for climate justice, a vote for racial justice, and a vote for an end to gentrification. Please join me in supporting his campaign." Olivia Bennett Continue reading

From all of us at Team Hoffman/Warburton, we would like to wish you a Happy Labor Day! As New Jersey reels from a historic pandemic, one in which corporations consolidated their wealth, politicians collected checks off their investments, and workers hardly got by, we find it imperative that workers build power in government to challenge the status quo. Our campaign team, which is composed entirely of students and low/middle income workers, regrets that our government has so poorly supported New Jersey's working and middle class communities through COVID-19. Of course, this is made that much worse as our communities recover from recent natural disasters, including flood waters and tornado outbreaks all across our state. It is especially relevant now that Madelyn Hoffman, and her running mate Heather Warburton are running this campaign around their key policy of a Real, Ecosocialist Green New Deal. Continue reading
Chester's First Green Party Challenger CHESTER, PA – Chester resident, community activist, and union member Kearni Warren is officially on the ballot in this Fall's showdown for Chester City Council. She is the first minor party candidate to ever challenge the Democratic regime. "I am extremely excited to enter this race as the grassroots voice of our community," Ms. Warren said. "Chester is my home, and it has been for generations. I grew up in the Ruth L. Bennett Homes with my mother, Rev. Bernice Warren, who instilled in me the values of a true Chester leader: respect, dignity, and most of all, truth. I am launching this campaign to restore Chester's leadership to these values."

For 40 plus years, direct and indirect military action in Afghanistan has led to a destabilization of a country which once valued and respected human rights and liberties. The U.S. funding of and training of the Mujahideen, later known as the Taliban, created a situation where the need to care for refugees and victims of our military occupation would be inevitable.
