Ralph Nader supports Adirondack native Alice Green in race for Albany Mayor

ADK Almanack has been following the campaign of Albany mayoral candidate and progressive ADK native Alice Green – yesterday Ralph Nader was in town to support her candidacy, demand the current mayor Gerald Jennings, a.k.a. sun-tan man, debate her and to oppose the Abany Convention Center debacle.

Democracy in Albany has mixed feelings about the Nader-Green appearance, but did like one thing that Nader said:

“The mayor is a back-door escape artist who doesn’t want any exchange with organized citizenry,” said Nader, who said the city’s one-party domination means “that you don’t have an election, you have a coronation.”

That sounds like another fine institution about 45 minutes north.
