    Green Party a worthy alternative

    The Democrats and Republicans have, for decades, taken turns ruling over towns, states, and the country.

    Generally, the populace will switch their vote from one to the other after they believe one party has made too many mistakes, and will switch their vote a few years later after they feel the second party has caused too many problems.

    Through it all, the plurality of registered voters in Waterford don’t belong to either party. 48.8 percent of all voters in the town are unaffiliated, according to a 2014 report from Connecticut's secretary of the state. 

    It’s clear that many individuals do not feel represented by either party in town, and I believe it’s safe to say that many people registered as a member with one of the two major parties don’t agree with all the policies that their party promotes.

    Therefore, in order to see a town government that works together to accurately represent the people, we need to see more unaffiliated candidates and more candidates from minor parties elected to office. I hope that the voters of Waterford will strongly consider voting for the Green Party candidates in November, since we haven’t seemed to enjoy a two-party system.
