Hot on Nader’s heels, a Huron Valley Green Party press release states:

David Cobb received the nomination of the Green Party of the United States at the national convention in the Milwaukee this past June. He will be speaking in Ann Arbor on Thursday Sept. 16th at 7:30 pm (along with local Green Party candidates) as part of a national tour.

The platform of the Cobb campaign is based in the values of the Green Party; Ecology, Non-Violence, Grassroots Democracy and Social Justice. He opposes the Iraq war, and calls for an immediate withdrawal of the U.S. Military as a first step towards a foreign policy based in nonviolence and diplomacy. The campaign also calls for a universal, single-payer health care plan, the legalization of same-sex marriage, energy independence, and a rapid transition to clean, renewable energy sources.

However, the press release doesn’t state where he’ll be speaking, nor does Cobb’s website. Further information as it becomes available.

Update 9:55 PM by Brian Kerr—one Donn Fresard wrote to inform us that (I quote the message in its entirety):

“Just so you know, it’ll be in B122 of the MLB.”

Since that’s a small basement classroom, it seems that the commentor below might be on the ball.

  1. Is this the same guy who came to Ypsi a few months back and attracted a crowd of about 20?

  3. Can we get a head count from a local Green on his last visit? Anyone?
