Long time California Green Party activist Walt Sheasby passed yesterday from West Nile disease, the seventh fatality from West Nile in California this year among 250 reported cases.
He and I were members of the Green Party of Los Angeles County Council a few years back. He was a hardcore “movement” Green and Nader supporter, ran for state office multiple times, and was a passionate Green Party member since the inception of the party.
Here are some of his writings.
