Kishineff: Try to vote for corporate-free candidates

I want to remind your readers that politicians that take donations from corporate lobbyists and super PACs are working for corporations and not you, the voter.

Please research candidates before you vote and try to vote for corporate-free candidates. These are the people trying to work for you.

A perfect example is lieutenant governor candidate Gayle McLaughlin (and no, I do not work for her). I met Gayle at a glyphosate forum in Napa and I marched with her in Santa Rosa on May Day. If you aren't familiar with her story, it’s definitely worth reading about. She is a true people's hero.

One of her plans is to use her office as lieutenant governor to unite all kinds of civil rights groups and environmental groups and health awareness groups so that we can organize and mobilize and keep each other aware of the issues that we are facing.

A really great example is the fight in Vallejo to prevent the Orcem cement factory from going in to an area within range of many schools and residences.

Folks in Eureka or San Diego will have no idea what's been going on or how the people have been fighting it – what's worked and what hasn't.

And when we are finally successful in stopping this horror story, Orcem may try to inflict their asthma-inducing particle clouds somewhere else. Maybe it will be near you, and it will be useful to have that communication available through that kind of progressive alliance.

So again, please vote on June 5 and vote for corporate free candidates. Thank you.

Jason Kishineff lives in American Canyon, Calif., and is a Green Party candidate for California’s Fifth Congressional District.
