It’s Not Easy Being Green

John Kromko’s decision to take on state Reps. Phil Lopes and Olivia Cajero Bedford in the Legislative District 27 Democratic primary means the wily ol’ former lawmaker has had to split with the Pima County Green Party.

Last year, when he flirted with a mayoral campaign on the Green ticket, Kromko changed his party registration, much to the delight of Green Party activists.

Dave Ewoldt, a member of the Greens’ steering committee who was running Dave Croteau’s mayoral campaign, sent out a dispatch in which he quoted himself as saying: “Kromko’s decision to go Green provides a shining example not just for other Democrats, but for Republicans and Independents as well.”

But as special as the moment was for Ewoldt, it appears to have been nothing but a fling to Kromko, who has apparently realized the downside of running as a Green: You don’t win elections.

  1. Kromko was never a real Green. He refused to sign petitions to get Greens on the ballot, tried to prevent others from signing, then when it suits his purpose runs as a Green.

    The real issue is why is the Green Party so stupid to fall for it?
