The Green Party nominating meeting for the Fourth Congressional District, originally scheduled for January 5, will instead take place on Sunday, January 13, at 1:00 PM. The date was changed to accommodate a second candidate seeking the nomination.
The two announced candidates are Richard Duffee of Stamford, a retired lawyer and impeachment activist, and Gerald Falbel of Stamford, a solar energy engineer/designer and president of Optical Energy Technologies.
In an earlier statement, Mr. Duffee said, "I believe the current Congress has not taken seriously the oath of office to defend the Constitution. We are in a constitutional crisis that cannot end until we repudiate empire and imperial presidencies and return to our Republic."
In a letter sent to the Stamford Advocate, Mr. Falbel wrote, "With the realization that catastrophic global warming is rapidly approaching, I have decided to apply for the nomination of the Connecticut Green Party to run against Christopher Shays in the 2008 election."
