Dave Marshall, 28, is an artist and activist who owns Pine Street Studios in the West End and works as a Time Dollar Coordinator and Service Works Supervisor at Portland West. A bit about Marshall: He has a tiny brown dog and the paintings inside his gallery are so bright you can see them from the sidewalk.
In an e-mail sent out today to "Editors and Reporters of the Local Press," Donoghue and party co-chair Rebecca Minnick write that Donoghue and Marshall are running to fight a "lack of vision and respect for citizen review" on the council. Since the city council is technically non-partisan, the Greens will not run as party affiliates but will seek the party's endorsement.
In an interesting twist, Greens Donoghue and Marshall are calling for a limit on the green. They vow to only accept pledges donated from Portland residents and businesses and only those in amounts of $100 or less. And they want Gorham and Geraghty to promise to do the same. No word yet on whether they will.
