Princeton Times Leader runs article announcing Don Ellis for Kentucky House campaign

My campaign would like to thank the staff at the Princeton Times Leader for their article announcing my campaign. I bought the print edition this morning, but their website charges to read articles. I purchased a subscription in order to copy the article here so that everyone can read it., the website of Murray State University's NPR radio station, also ran an article announcing my campaign. Click here to read the article on their site.

Thanks again to and especially the Princeton Times leader for allowing me to post their article here:

A basic website, a basic platform, a basic campaign

When I asked his opinion of my campaign website, my very close friend Chad Cushman commented that while it looked nice, it was kind of basic.

While I appreciated the constructive criticism, I had to reply that the "basic" design is intentional.

No, I don't have a flashy website full of bells and whistles, because I'm not running a campaign full of bells and whistles. I built this website myself, the same way I am building my campaign.

Green Party Radio Network founder Don Ellis announces run for KY House of Representatives, District 4

Don Ellis, founder of The Green Party Radio Network and producer/co-host of The Green Party Radio Show, has announced his candidacy for the Kentucky State House of Representatives in the 4th District.

The 51-year-old Grand Rivers resident, who will be running a write-in campaign, recently filed the necessary paperwork with Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.

Don's general campaign will concentrate on the Green Party's four key pillars that make up the foundation of worldwide Green Parties:
  • Ecological wisdom
  • Social justice
  • Grassroots democracy
  • Nonviolence
More specifically, as a former Collective Bargaining Agreement Negotiator for the Service Employees International Union Heatlhcare of Illinois & Indiana, Don plans to implore his fellow Representatives to fight for more union jobs in Kentucky while also repelling Republican efforts to make Kentucky a right-to-work state.

Along with increased union membership, if elected Don plans to do everything in his power to make sure that all Kentuckians have the right to earn a living wage.
