Vail Daily letter: Seeking your support

I’m Arn Menconi, and I am a candidate for U.S. Senate for the Green Party.

I am running, because as a dad of two young children, our generation must take democracy back. I want to represent the people, not corporations and the top 1 percent.

I will fight to end the military industrial dominance of our government with its endless greed and killings, end our dependence on fossil fuels by 2050, providing single-payer healthcare for all as a right — not as a privilege — and break up the big banks and power of Wall Street that has been stealing resources from our children and grandchildren.

This country is run by a global corporate mafia that has written the rules, laws and free trade agreements so that they no longer need sovereign borders when they can create their own. They no longer pay for the resources that make their profits. And, they have rented politicians who need their money, lying to the citizens and saying that they are serving democracy.

This is a crime. It’s called kleptocracy. I will fight every day exposing this and making sure every senator, congressperson and the president is representing the people, not corporate totalitarianism.

Our world is not for sale. Our country will not be the biggest terrorist. Our judicial system will not lock up the whistleblower and communities of color while politicians commit war crimes and chief executive officer’s fraud. They will no longer walk free while we become slaves.

There is no peace without justice. And justice will prevail.

I am a former Eagle County commissioner and former executive director of a national outdoor youth charity and am dedicated to social justice. I am taking on establishment politicians by demanding we take back America from corporate government and fight for the people.

I hope to receive your support. Learn more about me at
