Ukiah Green activist Runs Against State Democrat Congressman

There are stories across the nation of credible candidates offering themselves up for service to or being drafted by the Green Party. Usually, a deep sense of commitment to one's community gives them the fuel to overide derision and doubt. With no corporate funding, these candidates have to meet people and talk and listen - and - bottom line - raise some money one hand shake at a time, because - no matter what shade of green saint you are, you're still in need of some media in order to differentiate yourself. Mainstream Media generally takes money, even the internet.

Green-leaning Carol Wolman, a psychiatrist and facility director, has placed a challenge on incumbent Mike Thompson's (D-Napa) for the 1st Congressional CA District seat . She announced her intention to seek the Green Party's nomination for Rep. I feel it is much safer than many other medicines," she said. "I am also very focused on peace...I am interested in transferring funds to domestic issues, including infrastructure, health care -- things people care about."

She has events lined up for
  • 7 p.m. Jan. 4 at the Fort Bragg Town Hall,
  • 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 6 at the Mateel Community Center in Redway.
