Republican registers Green, runs for County Commission

The Daily American reports that Clair Saylor, of Rockwood PA has left the Republican Party after serving in a leadership position in that party to join we Greens and run for County Council in Somerset County.

Not sure if this is a good thing or not, in this case. He says many things I agree with, like tourism is not the sort of thing a community should base it's economy on. Even so, this sort of thing is worrisome:
“As far as knowing anything about the Green Party, I know absolutely nothing. I've been a Republican all my life and this is the only way I could get my name on the ballot,” he said.

My vote would be it is not a good thing...A lifelong republican who "switches" sides just to get on the ballot.

He admits that he knows nothing about the Green Party, to his credit he doesn't see tourism as the best item his county should count on for revenue...he also wants to expand roads to open more areas for development...has he not heard of urban sprawl?...also if you were to support about mass transit to those locations?
