Two Green candidates?
« on: August 15, 2009, 01:10:56 PM »
Am I missing something or are there two candidates petitioning to get on the ballot as the Green Party candidate?  Lynn Serpe and Jerry Kahn - are they seeking to have a primary against each other, or are they petitioning with two different Green Party names?  I saw both camps out today along Broadway and was curious.

I see Lynn's people all around and her signs up as well, but hadn't realized there might be a second candidate - it's confusing.

I had only seen Lynn's operation at this point.

Not that it matters to me......anyone not named Vallone will get my vote...After his cowardly action regarding term limits, I will even vote for a republican. Hell, I'd vote for Bush if he was running for the district.

Lynne is the only Green candidate.  Jerry is a late entry under the Populist Party.

Thanks Heff - why is he in the race?  Hasn't he lost three times already?

You'd have to ask Jerry why he decided to run again.  Maybe you can call him at his campaign office.  Just kidding, he'll never open an office.

Oh, but coincidentally I just remember now that Lynne Serpe's campaign is having an Office Warming Party tomorrow (meaning Tuesday the 18th) at the new offices, located at 25-23 Astoria Blvd just across from Astoria Manor.  Drinks and snacks will be served from 6pm-9pm and you can swing by and ask Lynne anything you want.
