Bridging the GDI divide

Ken Sain, partly due to the prominence of his blog in the Green world and partly due to his experience as a professional journalist, has taken the lead in trying to fairly present the two strains in the Green Party today, and work to bring them together.

After hearing a report from a meeting of his own local, the DC Statehood Party, which he could not attend, he has again issued a call for mediation and cooperation.

This is the most concise and even-handed statement on the matter I’ve seen. I completely agree with Ken and I hope that GDI will not continue its hardline and antagonistic stance on the matter. To do so would serve to confirm the worst suspicions of those who think that the GDI leaders might not have the best interests of the Green Party at heart.
