CARL ESTABROOK is the Green Party candidate for the United States House of Representatives from the 15th Illinois Congressional District, covering most of East Central Illinois.
Carl believes that Green values are key to building a better society. As our Congressman, he will support laws that promote Ecological Wisdom, Social Justice, Non-violence, and Grassroots Democracy.
Recent history shows that there is little difference between the leadership of the two semi-official parties on the issues, economic and political, that matter most to Americans. The Green Party is growing rapidly across the country because it does offer an alternative to the two parties, which represent primarily their big-business funders.
The Estabrook for Congress campaign is actively seeking volunteers. If you like what you find here, please get involved! This campaign runs on people power.
Carl would like to address as many constituent groups as possible around the District, both in person and via media events. To invite Carl to speak to your group, or if you have any questions for him, contact him via email, or call 217-355-7313.
