Tuesday’s Candidate: Bob Brister

TODAY’S CANDIDATE OF THE DAY IS

Bob Brister, the Green Party candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Utah’s 2nd District.

From the campaign website…

Bob has been active in the Green Party since the first national Green Gathering in the U.S. was held in 1987. That same year, he attended the Institute for Social Ecology in Vermont to study the burgeoning “Green Movement.” In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Bob was a prime organizer of the Florida Green Party. In the mid-1990s, Bob organized the Austin Greens in Texas. In the late 1990s, he founded the Madera Greens in California and served on the Green Party of California council.

Bob campaigned for Ralph Nader for President in 1996, 2000 and in 2004. Since moving to Salt Lake City in 2001, Bob has been active in the Green Party of Utah. This is his first run for elected office.

Brister faces a tough race against an incumbent Democratic Congressman, Republican State Representative, and candidates from the Constitution and Libertarian parties.

    Since voting for Jim Matheson is very much the same as voting for a rubberstamp for the Bush administration, I am sure that we will see a large voter turnout in favor of Brister from the Two Parties. With the Military Commissions Act of 2006, the right of Habeas Corpus has been discarded.
