I'm Peter Myers, the Green Party candidate for the 15th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Congress. On this blog, you can read about the campaign and the issues, and offer me feedback as well. I hope you enjoy reading the blog, and I hope you'll join the campaign for change.

Myself and other Greens at San Jose State

Here's the article from the San Jose State Spartan Daily, describing a forum that I participated in last week. Here's perhaps the most interesting part:

The event was supposed to include representatives from the Green Party, the Socialist and Liberation Party, the American Independent Party, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.

Jerry Denim, the American Independent Party representative, didn't show up, and as the event was set up, the Democratic and Republican representatives were nowhere to be found either.

At an event for students and other locals about the importance of politics in life, officials from the Democratic and Republican parties didn't even bother showing up, leaving their party views to be represented by students. Jim Doyle, Drew Johnson and I were more than happy to talk to over 40 people about Green Party views. If the two major parties continue to ignore the American people, the American people will ignore them.
