Nader to campaign for West Monday
April 20, 2007
New Paltz — Ralph Nader is coming to town to campaign for fellow Green
Party member Jason West on Monday.
Nader, probably the country's best-known corporate critic and a former
presidential candidate, is expected to attend a screening of "An
Unreasonable Man," a documentary about himself at the Rosendale
Theater at 6:30 p.m. He'll answer questions and sign his latest book
Nader's appearence marks the first time in living memory that a
national political figure has come to campaign on behalf of a village
of New Paltz candidate. West is running for a second four-year term as
mayor against Terry Dungen, a current member of the village board. The
election is May 1.
West said in a prepared statement that he was honored to have Nader
campaign on his behalf.
Earlier Monday, Nader is scheduled to give an address at Vassar College.
