Bill Paparian is running for Congress as a Green in CA-29. He’s hardcore antiwar, calls for the impeachment of Bush, and has succeeded in making his campaign way more visible than is the norm. He’s sent out thousands of mailers, volunteers are phone-banking every night, and the buzz is building. This is a campaign to watch and support.
Paparian had an open house yesterday at the campaign office. I video’ed some of the endorsements and statements of support.
Danny Bakewell Sr., long-time activist in L.A., real estate developer, and publisher of the L.A. Sentinel (the largest Black-owned weekly newspaper in the west) endorses Paparian. YouTube video.
Bob McCloskey, Democratic primary candidate for Congress in CA-29 in 2006 endorses Paparian. That’s right, a previous Democratic candidate for CA-29 is now endorsing a Green for that seat rather than the Democrat. YouTube video.
(Bill and Preston are friends. I’m webmaster for Bill’s campaign site for which I’m paid a modest amount)
