To the Editor:

... Jill Stein is the candidate of the Green Party which favors converting to renewable energy from our fossil fuel dependence, ending our wars for oil, and shifting production from war materials and energy extraction to green energy and public mass transit.

Jill also advocates tuition-free public education, single-payer Medicare health insurance program for all, and $15/hour minimum wage. She advocates overturning Citizens United, and breaking up the too-big-to-fail Wall Street banks.

She proposes an end to police brutality, mass incarceration, an end to the war on drugs, and creating a path to citizenship as Emma Lazarus’ poem, engraved on a tablet on which the Statue of Liberty stands, describes.

Hers is the only candidacy that preferences people ahead of profits.

— Jerry Davidson

515 Scott St.
