Support #TeamGreen for NLBOE

At a special nominating meeting held on June 14, 2017, the New London Greens nominated two candidates for Board of Education. Two-term incumbent board member Mirna Martínez received 1,718 votes in 2015 and was the only non-Democrat elected to municipal office that year. First-time candidate Erick Carrión is a 2010 New London High School graduate who has worked as a community organizer for FRESH New London and Hearing Youth Voices. We're looking forward to an energetic campaign!
