Clifford Thornton of CT runs for national co-chair

While I have decided to turn most of my attention to local affairs and away from national, occasionally I will post about national topics, and this is one of those times.

Clifford Thornton has agreed to seek a position on the national party steering committee. This would seem to be very good news indeed. Thornton was our nominee for Governor of CT, and has been out front on the Green Agenda and it's implications for Black voters for some time. Recognizing that severe sentences for drug offenders tears families apart and does not end drug abuse, Thornton made drug law reform a centerpiece of his campaign.

Thornton is a member of the resurgent Green Party Black Caucus, and I can't help but believe that both the Black Caucus and the national Green Party will benefit from him seeking a seat on the national steering committee.
