"Great Green sprouts grown in Waterford" - Letter to the Editor
Published September 10. 2015
Over the past two years I have followed the Waterford Green Party and watched it grow into a dedicated political party that practices its core values. Its diverse members have conducted community cleanups and fundraisers for a variety of important causes, including an annual Waterford High School scholarship.
I am so impressed by the service of this group and their commitment to hands-on action to better our lives. They can often be found on high-traffic roadways and public spaces (Douglas Lane, Waterford Beach, and Stenger Farm, to name only a few.)
Their volunteerism has led to a significant reduction of litter from our town’s public lands and hundreds of dollars donated to charitable organizations such as UNICEF and the World Food Program. I am excited to be a new member of a political party that rejects corporate influence and big-money campaigns. The vision and practices of the Waterford “Greens” offer community members opportunities to actively turn around a bleak fiscal and environmental future. I hope the community will support the local Green Party members in upcoming elections.
