Why Steven "Andy" Ellis is Running
In this video Steven "Andy" Ellis explains why he is running as a Green Party candidate and how he thinks that the Green Party can make a significant change in Annapolis.
The power is in our hands to make the better world we want to see.
I believe that state level lawmaking and politics are absolutely essential to the health, safety, and success of Baltimore.
Unfortunately I think right now our state government in Annapolis is an obstacle to progress.Mostly it is a means of protecting the power of elected leaders and the profit of their corporate donors, not an agent for real racial, economic, and environmental justice.
To make Annapolis advance the values of social justice, grassroots democracy, non-violence, and ecological wisdom I will:
- Fix our broken election system
- work with new coalitions in Baltimore and across the state
- Take my solutions from people instead of Annapolis bosses
- Put human rights above corporate rights
To achieve these goals will require a grassroots effort that builds political power independent of the Democrats and Republicans, it won't be easy, but it is work we must do, and with your help I am ready to do it.
