Surely, by most any standard, the elections of October 4, 2003 must be the greatest showing to date for Greater New Orleans Green Party-endorsed candidates. This must be somewhat inspiring to many local progressives and Greens, as I know it's extraordinarily inspiring to me. I don't have adequate words to congratulate, and to thank, the campaigns, managements, staffs, volunteers and all other participants in these campaigns for attaining such historically high results, in spite of all of the difficulties experienced, and in spite of the fact that efforts were more or less divided five ways simultaneously. Now let's go out to our communities and let them know that the Green Party has arrived in New Orleans and wants to assist all in the quest for peace and justice. -- Steve Godfrey
