For Immediate Release
Former Green Party Candidate for Governor Dies
Baltimore - Eddie Boyd, 2006 Green Party candidate for Governor, passed away this morning at 2:17 AM at Good Samaritan Hospital of lung cancer.
Eddie had suffered renal failure and cardiac arrest before passing thisMonday morning.
Almost exactly one year ago, Eddie was diagnosed with cancer in the leg.
The cancer had spread from his leg to his lungs. For years, Eddie
complained of pain in his leg, and for years, the Veterans Administration
Hospital in Baltimore City had failed to inform him that he had cancer.
We mourn the loss of our dear friend, whom we greatly admired. Eddie was
the first Green Party candidate for Governor in Maryland history as well
as the first African-American candidate to ever run in a gubernatorial
general election. Eddie was always upbeat in his fight.
Services to honor Eddie are pending.
The war IS the economy, stupid!
Take the pledge:
will vote on the basis of results and results only. Not party loyalty,
not perceived "electability", not lesser-of-two-evils, not charisma or
anything else. Just results. Come 2008, if American troops are still in
harms' way overseas, or if Cheney & Duhbbya have not been
impeached, no Democrat -- at any level -- will get my vote.
