Green Party gets footing in Waterford

Dec 7th, 2013 | By | Category: General

Unsatisfied with the political candidates they could choose from, two 2013 Waterford High School graduates decided to take it upon themselves to make sure they would have candidates who they truly agree with.

“We don’t politically align with the Democrats or the Republicans, we tend to be a little more liberal leaning than either party,” Joshua Kelly said. “We decided that we didn’t want to stick with the two-party system, we didn’t want to go with the lesser of two evils every time we voted.”

So, along with a handful of like-minded friends, Kelly and Baird Welch-Collins decided to start organizing a chapter of the Green Party in their native Waterford with hopes of becoming an officially recognized group.
