Dennis Spisak , 2010 Green Party candidate for Governor of Ohio, has “unofficially” announced that he will be seeking the Green Party nomination for Governor in 2014.
His running mate will be Suzanne Patzer, an Instructional Design Supervisor for Columbus State and a community advocate.
“We need a Governor and Lt. Governor who will make Ohio greater and greener”, said Spisak.  ”Suzanne Patzer and myself are in this race because there are progressive concerns that John Kasich has not addressed nor has offered  any progressive solutions to fix problems facing Ohio today. John Kasich has remained silent.”
Spisak listed the following concerns about Kasich:
  • John Kasich is silent in supporting the Healthcare For All Ohioans Act.
  • John Kasich is silent on advancing blue-green renewable energy and jobs in Ohio.
  • John Kasich is silent on advocating a progressive fair tax system in Ohio.
  • John Kasich is silent on true school finance reform.
  • John Kasich is silent on foreclosure and finance reform.
  • John Kasich is silent on the environment and fracking.

“Ohio needs a Governor to end the silence and speak out and address these issues,” said Spisak. “I am that Governor.”

    Sorry, but I’m not jumping on this bandwagon. Have we learned nothing since the days of Nancy Lazar ( another minor party candidate for Gov who got almost 100000 votes in the ’74 election) allowing Rhodes to beat Gilligan by a mere 11000 votes? Vote for the Green candidate and hand Kasich another 4 years?…No thanks…The Dems are green enough for me…Spiask (like Nadar’s Florida vote in 2000) will cause nothing but grief for progressives- and Kasich will be laughing all the way to another 4 years…

  • jr6020

    You don’t dispute the past history I raised…voting green is voting Kasich- period…you folks and Nadar can live with that?- not me…

  • TonyP001

    Your story contained one critical error…everything you listed that Dennis Spisak said about Kasich….he also included Democratic presumptive nominee Ed Fitzgerald in that list….the same list applies…as in:
    “Kasich and Fitzgerald are silent…” Nice cherry picking of his announcement.

  • TonyP001

    Regardless of who wins….I would rather vote my conscience than be railroaded by the two corporate parties…

  • jr6020

    And can you live with more right-to-work laws, restricted voting, weakening of the Ohio EPA and charter school expansion? The Dems are against all that…and decent on Green issues enough for me…so go ahead and vote your conscience…and will your conscience bother you if JK wins and the things I listed above come true???

    What, is Bob Fitrakis ill? I just saw him at The Y today…

  • anastasjoy

    Fitrakis is at least a decent person with coherent positions.

  • David Corey

    I quite agree. I like the man. I’m just wondering why he’s not running. I know he ran on the Green ticket in the 3rd District last cycle. Maybe he just likes throwing lawsuits at the SoS too much.

    Kasich isn’t silent on these issues – he’s directly and actively opposed to them. What a worthless sound bite announcement. I generally like the Green Party, but that’s a pretty awful campaign launch.
