If You're Not a Green and Voted for Charlie Manolakis, Raise Your Hand

Posted By on Wed, Jun 13, 2012 at 3:30 PM

A completely sincere question: if you're among the over 3713 voters who cast a ballot for Charlie Manolakis who are not also a registered members of the Green Party (there were 808 Greens in CD 8 according to the Secretary of State and as of nowish, 4521 people voted for Manolakis), why did you make that decision?

Acknowledging that neither candidate was perfect, but also with the understanding that Manolakis barely participated in the campaign process other than somewhat quixotic appearances at the debates (he spent the weekend before the election at Cape Cod, for example), what made you vote for him?

No judgement, just trying to understand the thought process.
