Alicia Robinson If more people voted for the political party that truly represents what they believe, more of them would probably vote green, social activist Peter Camejo said Friday during a talk at Orange Coast College. Camejo, a Green Party candidate for governor in the October recall election, drew a standing ovation when he shared his criticisms of the Iraq war, the U.S. tax system and the Bush administration with several hundred students at OCC. One of his themes was the inequality of American income taxes.

Béa Tiritilli wants to offer voters a choice that isn't between just Republicans and Democrats.The Green party has never had a member elected to Congress, but congressional candidate Béa Tiritilli is aiming to be the first. She knows it's hard to compete with opponents who can raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, but she's still working to get her message out, one voter at a time. Tiritilli will face four opponents in a Dec. 6 election: Republican state Sen. John Campbell, Libertarian Bruce Cohen, American Independent Party candidate Jim Gilchrist, and Democrat Steve Young.

Alex Coolman Green Party presidential nominee Ralph Nader swooped into Orange County on Friday, and some of Costa Mesa's Greens made the pilgrimage to hear him speak. The lanky candidate appeared before an overflowing auditorium at Chapman University in Orange, slamming Republicans and Democrats for being the pawns of corporate interests that he called craven, myopic and greedy. "The only difference between George Bush and Al Gore is the velocity with which their knees hit the floor when the corporations knock on the door," Nader said of the Republican and Democratic nominees for president.

Douglas Zimmerman For Green Party congressional candidate Tom Lash, the statistics are hard to ignore. Running in the 46th Congressional District, where 48% of the registered voters are Republican and for the past 16 years voters have reelected Republican Dana Rohrabacher, the chances of winning the seat seem remote at best. However, he confidently predicts he will be the first Green party member to serve in Congress next year. "I have a chance of winning," Lash said.

Alex Coolman NEWPORT-MESA -- In the great zoo of Orange County politics, there are more animals than the donkey and the elephant. While the area is famous for its consistent support of Republican legislators, and while Democrats currently have a firm grip on California's Senate seats, other parties' candidates figure significantly in the political mix. They may not always be able to win an election, they concede,...

Alicia Robinson It looks like two of the six Republican candidates for the heavily contended 70th Assembly District seat are going to have to share -- an endorsement, that is. Don Wagner announced last week he has garnered an endorsement from University of California Regent Ward Connerly, who already has endorsed Wagner opponent Marianne Zippi. Balboa Peninsula resident Zippi announced her Connerly endorsement in October. Reached this week, she said, "I had no idea that Ward was endorsing more than one [candidate]

Without the telltale beakers and Bunsen burners, many would mistake Corona Del Mar teacher Tom Lash’s science classroom as one more correctly suited for a history or civics lesson. Stickers and posters advertising Greenpeace, progressive radio stations, and other messages critical of the status quo sprinkle throughout his classroom, reflecting the deep values Lash says he’s held since childhood. It was only in 2000, however, when the Huntington Beach resident decided to enter his hat into the ring and challenge Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in the 46th district, after a friend of his encouraged him to run on the Green Party ticket.

Dave Brooks The Democratic challenger to 16-year incumbent Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is hoping there is enough change in the political wind to sail him into the House of Representatives. Democrat Jim Brandt is running an aggressive campaign against Rohrabacher for a the 46th Congressional District seat. Green Party candidate Tom Lash is also running for the seat, as is Libertarian Keith Gann. Traditionally the coastal district -- which begins in Palos Verdes, stretches past Los Angeles and Long Beach harbors down to parts of Costa Mesa -- has been considered a safe district for Republicans.
