Corporate PACs in Brad Owen's Pocket

... or is that the other way around.

Corporate chieftains and the Establishment are lining up behind the incumbent Lieutenant Governor, Brad Owen, as Public Disclosure Commission reports are currently showing. Of course, they enjoy the tax loopholes that their underlings in Washington's official political circles provide for them, as the budget crisis here squeezes the poor and the needy, and big businesses use storefront offices, or maybe even mere post office boxes, in other states to avoid taxes. The State of California and some other states, if not most, don't allow that, but the cozy status quo in the Evergreen State is just fine for the political/corporate establishment, here, and Mr. Owen shall continue to be the beneficiary of their P.A.C. money largess. Not to mention that they have probably heard of Owen's main opponent's (Mark Greene's) environmental reforms and general doctrines that really represent the people. Owen will have the money, Mark should have the support of Washington commoners.

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, therefore Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order. If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark will concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems. Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with. If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling. People, generally, won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously. Please, send an e-mail to mark@partyofcommons.com to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot. Thanks.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign: click on the title link above and make selections of how you want to donate, or send check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
