NEW JERSEY INDEPENDENTS
Meet the man who should be governor of NJ, if we had any sense (Jeff Edelstein column, The Trentonian) Some of you may remember Kostas; he ran for governor in 2009. (For those keeping score at home, he lost.) But he did manage to get some 2,500 votes, which ain’t so terrible for an Independent candidate who had no chance of winning. Clearly, his message got through to a few of us. He called his party the “For the People,” and what he believed then rings so true today, it made me forget all about the 12-foot sunflower looming overhead.
