Third Party Action

Guess who was out looking for petition action at the Murdale Farmer's Market yesterday? Representatives of the Libertarian Party seeking enough signatures to get on the ballot this November. Unlike the Green Party, the Libertarians haven't picked up enough votes in past elections to guarantee themselves a spot.

Speaking of the Greens, the Eurma Hayes Center is the place to be on Monday the 9th at 6:30 when the Green Party's presidential candidate, Cynthia McKinney, hosts (via speakerphone) a fundraising dinner. It's only $10 a plate and Congresswoman McKinney will answer questions.

Heck, she gets points as the only presidential candidate putting in an appearance in Carbondale so far this campaign. Closest any of the others have gotten is an appearance by Chelsea Clinton in Cape Girardeau a few months ago.
