Guys, this is big. Thanks to Ross Levin ’15, we’re finally returning to our age-old tradition of welcoming Presidential candidates to campus… except this time, ze’s not filling in for Ted Kennedy. I don’t think it’s too much to say that the times certainly have changed (ok, fine… but remember when the numbers looked like this?). So if you’re thinking of voting more against the other guy than for your guy, this event might be of special interest to you:
Green Party presidential candidate, physician, and environmental-health advocate Dr. Jill Stein will be speaking in Middletown on March 1st. Dr. Stein advocates for the creation of a “Green New Deal,” which aims to end unemployment, transition to a more sustainable energy infrastructure, initiate financial reform, and strengthen democracy by protecting voters’ rights and limiting the power of corporations.
If you’re interested in Dr. Stein’s campaign, curious about the Green Party, or frustrated by the politics of the two-party system, come to the event on March 1st!
This will be at the First Church of Christ, located at 190 Court Street.

I know lots of y’all who are down as “Liberal” or “Very Liberal” on your Facebook are probably going to vote for Obama anyway, which is somewhere between mildly and fairly amusing. If you’re not into the idea of me laughing at you, start looking at alternatives (especially when they come into your community!).
