Congrats to Maria & Glenn!

Wow, it's been a really long time since I've posted!

Anyway, a hearty congratulations should go out to Green Party Senate candidate Maria Allwine and Baltimore City Council Candidate Glenn Ross! They both appeared alongside David Cobb on today's Marc Steiner show.

If you're not from Baltimore, Marc Steiner is possibly the most important talk show host in town. WYPR is the NPR affiliate and for many years, Marc Steiner has been hosting an incredibly informative public affairs program that, I dare say, has helped me become the person I am today. Thanks to Marc also for hosting a few of our candidates. Hopefully we can get some more on as the election cycle progresses. And hopefully we'll get to talk to a few callers next time (today's show was pre-recorded)!

We've also been written about by the Capital News Service, which is done through the University of MD at College Park's Journalism School. It's not a bad article. Indeed, we've received very little negative coverage (you don't want me to go there), although one Baltimore City Green told me tonight that he thought the front page article made Bob Auerbach out to be a little kooky. But hey, kooky isn't bad. It's totally wacked-out off our rockers that's bad. I don't think it's any secret either within the MGP or without that Bob's campaign exists if only to raise the important issues. Besides, he looked great in his straw hat & the US flag waving behind him!

So, now that we're getting all this coverage, it's time to capitalize on our achievements! This is my plea to you: SUPPORT OUR CANDIDATES! Volunteer, make a donation, work the phones! There's plenty to be done, and we're grassroots...meaning if you want change, then it's in YOUR hands to start it. And while you're at it, go light a fire under someone else's butt!
