The following email was sent to impeachment supporters in the Takoma Park area; we’ve added a video link to the campaign video mentioned in the second paragraph.
Dear Takoma Park Impeach Bush & Cheney supporter,
We — Thomas Nephew, Lisa Moscatiello, and Michelle Bailey — are writing to endorse Gordon Clark (Green Party) for Maryland’s 8th Congressional District seat in the House of Representatives. We’re confident that as the kind of independent thinker who has supported impeachment, you’ll be very impressed with Mr. Clark, who is opposing incumbent Chris Van Hollen (Democratic Party). For our part, all three of us will be voting for him on November 4th.
To learn more about Gordon Clark, visit his web site at www.clarkforcongress.net. While you’re there, be sure to check out his latest campaign video — a great two minute summary of why Gordon Clark is running for Congress.* There’s also a video of his recent debate with Republican Steve Hudson and Van Hollen legislative aide Bill Parsons (Van Hollen couldn’t attend because of the bailout bill vote).
The centerpiece of Clark’s campaign is a Green New Deal — an Apollo program, Manhattan Project, and Marshall Plan all rolled into one — to put America on the path to renewable energy independence. He also supports universal health care, opposes threatening war with Iran, and wants a complete withdrawal from Iraq; as you’ll see from an issues chart comparison, Chris Van Hollen falls short on these and other counts. There’s more, everything is well documented — and you’ll probably find yourself agreeing with Gordon Clark much more often than not.
There will be a Clark volunteer meeting today (Sunday, October 26th) from 4-6PM at 822 Gist Avenue, Silver Spring; to get in touch with the campaign, contact Sara Gilbertie at 860-233-4097 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the campaign web site at www.clarkforcongress.net.
What about Clark’s views on impeachment? Here’s what he told Internet radio host Chip Gibbons earlier this year:
