Stephanie just talked for a few
basically saying she wanted to make Mountain View a more sustainable
place for our grandchildren. She also said something nice about sharing
the stage with the Green Party's Presidential Candidate.
After the speaking was over, lots
of people wanted to talk to David Cobb. I took a few pictures, but
there were many more.
Everyone who had the time sat down
eat together. Cobb told the story of being sucked into the Green Party
by listening to Ralph Nader give his acceptance speech at the 1996
Nominating Convention, being so excited about what he heard that he
joined in the "go WE go!" chants. After it was over he got on the phone
to the Texas Green Party, only to find out the operator didn't have a
number for such a group. He then started that Party, and it wasn't long
before he was doing pro bono legal work for lots of Green Partys. From
there to being our current nominee was an almost logical sequence of
events that started when Nader decided he didn't want the job.
