    “Dr. Jill Stein is a mother, physician, a teacher of internal medicine, and an environmental-health advocate from Lexington, Massachusetts.  She is a member of the Green-Rainbow Party of Massachusetts.  Jill was the Green Party’s presidential nominee in 2012.  In addition, she was her state Green Party’s candidate for Governor in 2002, a Green Party candidate for State Representative in 2004, and a Green Party candidate for Secretary of State in 2006.  Dr. Stein stated, “A political revolution is stirring in America as people look for alternatives to a political establishment that has failed them.  As the only political party that has not been poisoned by corporate money, the Green Party provides a new way forward.  Our very survival depends on building new Green alliances that value people, planet and peace over profits.”
