The Lancaster County Green Party has endorsed Timothy Runkle’s race for the 1st Ward seat on Elizabethtown Borough Council. Tim is running because he believes that local government is best when it is powered by those that are committed to the community. He also insists that if we are to grow the Green Party we need to start at the local level and Be Seen Being Green. Tim plans on running a small campaign requiring only 150 votes to win the 1st Ward seat in Elizabethtown.
