Wednesday, August 13, 2014 - News Update

After a great deal of personal deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that I can not continue in my position as a candidate for US Congress. The reason for this is that my health has rapidly deteriorated over the last few months. After discussion with my doctor, it has become apparent that I am not able to physically carry out the duties of the office, and so it seems best to discontinue now. I want to thank you all for all of the support that you have shown me during this process up until now. Although I don't agree with him on a few issues, I think that you will find that the views of Robert Goodrich (D) are closest to my positions, out of the two other choices available. I welcome you to continue to vote for me if you like, as a protest vote, since this will help to keep the Green Party on the ballot as an option for voters. If you are not in the 3rd district, please vote with the Green Party if you have the option. I will still continue to support Green causes as much as I am able, and I am happy to answer questions via email. I should respond within 24-48 hours.

Yours In Solidarity,

Tonya
