Ursula Rozum on the Campbell Conversations

Aug 17, 2012

Running in her first race for public office, Ursula Rozum is the Green Party candidate for Congress in New York's 24th district.  She's going up against the incumbent Republican Ann Marie Buerkle and Democratic challenger Dan Maffei.

In this conversation, she describes her "Green New Deal" platform, explains why she thinks that spending more public dollars could actually lower the nation's debt in the long run, and contends that only the Greens are offering real solutions to the environmental challenges facing the nation and the world.

In a race where she won't likely win, but could very well be the difference-maker in the final outcome, she also explains why progressive voters should not be afraid to vote for a third-party candidate.
