Green Pol Saves Her Green

Lynne Serpe is all about the Green Party! Maybe it’s because she’s saved a lot of “green.”

Although Serpe’s campaign voices a commitment to Astoria’s cleanliness, affordable housing, sustainable development, expanded library service and good jobs in a green economy, she is paying her taxes to New Orleans instead of New York.

Her taxes currently go to “The Big Easy” because that’s where she has claimed her residence.

Since she must live in City Council District 22 by Election Day, Serpe says she plans to update her information.

The Green Party candidate is vying for term-limited Peter Vallone Jr.’s seat along with Democrat Costa Constantinides, who won the Democratic nomination earlier this month, Republican Daniel Peterson and Independent Danielle De Stefano.

If Serpe wins in November, we can only hope she doesn’t try to pass any legislation focused on New Orleans…
