Why I'm running for Maine State Senate, District 8:

Before going to Freedom Plaza & Occupy Wall Street, I wrote an article in which I called on fellow protesters to take hold of the reigns of government by running for office:   

“I want to see the people occupying Wall Street bring about the major reforms they are demanding. It’s my hope that they will carry this energy and excitement to their home towns, and run as candidates in 2012. And in 2013 we hope to see them occupying their state capitols not as protesters, but to claim seats of power in government.”

Now, coming back from nearly three months of being in DC and on Wall Street, I have been presented with the opportunity to take my own advice.

I am running as a Clean Elections candidate.  I am done with the qualifying period, and I will not be taking any money from any private donors to run this campaign.
