Green Party activist now mayor of Richmond, CA

From BrickBurner

Gayle McLaughlin, a member of the City Council and an activist in the Green Party, has officially won the title of mayor of Richmond, CA. Not only is the population of the city 103,000 – the largest mayorality ever won by the Greens in the US, but 3/4 of the population is African-American or other minorities.

Puts to rest any thoughts the Green Party is just Anglo tree-huggers, doesn’t it?
