Green Party Faces Deceased Incumbent In 32 District House Race
By Bob Small
Green Party candidate Quenoia “Zarah” Livingston, a healthcare worker and community organizer, is running against a dead man in Pennsylvania’s 32 District State House race, which is in Allegheny County.
The 85-year-old incumbent Democrat Tony Deluca died Oct. 9 of lymphoma and the GOP didn’t field a candidate.
Ms. Livingston is a leader of No Cop Money PA
They are fighting against what some see as the “Pennsylvania Police State.
These positions are taken from her campaign web site.
She says she would “ban fracking and retrain industry workers for equivalent green trades union jobs and protect our rights to alternative fuel sources, including solar”
She says she would guarantee housing.
She would seek to end a US-Israel law enforcement exchanges which she calls “deadly exchange.”
She wants to raise the minimum wage to $20.
She would earmark funds for fire and emergency services in rural areas.
She would legalize marijuana and magic mushrooms and back safe injection sites and needle exchanges.
If the late Mr. Deluca gets the most votes the seat will remain unfilled until a special election could be called.
Lastly, the only other non statewide candidate for the Pennsylvania Greens is Jay Ting Walker in the 23rd Legislative District. See his website for information.
