Green Machine?

Posted By on Mon, Jun 22, 2009 at 8:15 PM

As we reported in "Signature Problems" last week, the Pima County Democratic Party has challenged Dave Croteau's Green Party candidacy for the Tucson City Council, saying he didn't get enough signatures from Green Party members within Ward 6. Croteau told us today that he voluntarily withdrew, since he knew he wouldn't prevail in court.

But that doesn’t mean that Green Party is out of the race. Croteau tells us that his campaign manager, Dave Ewoldt, may be running as a write-in candidate. Ewoldt would have to get seven votes in the Sept. 1 primary to land a spot on the November ballot.

If he manages to do that, Democratic incumbent Nina Trasoff’s left flank will be exposed as she runs against Republican Steve Kozachik.

Croteau tells us that other Green write-ins may emerge in Ward 3, where Democratic incumbent Karin Uhlich is facing Republican Ben Buehler-Garcia, and in Ward 5, where Democrat Richard Fimbres is facing the winner of the GOP primary between Shaun McClusky and Judith Gomez.
