Our Candidates Are Green, and We Are Registered to Pursue Ballot Access '08

RECEIVED Sun., Jan. 6, 2008

Dear Editor,
    The Green Party of Texas registered with the secretary of state on Dec. 7 its required filing for political parties making nominations under Chapter 181 of the Texas Election Code [NewsDesk, News blog, Jan. 4]. The secretary’s office confirmed proper receipt of this document. On Dec. 15, the Green Party of Texas Executive Committee unanimously decided to pursue ballot access. We are going for ballot access in 2008 and expect to have a complete listing of candidates for the general election in the middle of next week, as many applications were filed on Jan. 2. Please rescind your article, because it is not true, and please do not hesitate to contact me or the state executive committee if you would like correct, official statements regarding the party.
Dr. Douglas Reber
Co-chair, the Green Party of Texas
   [Richard Whittaker responds: The blog entry was written based on information that we believed to be correct, provided by Travis County Green Party Chair Bill Holloway and independent candidate David Griffin, who had intended to run as a Green.]
