|Info||Bob Auerbach was born New York City in 1919. He earned his B.A. from NYU in 1948, and his M.A. from Peabody in 1956. Bob has lived over forty years in Maryland. He is a grandfather and is active in many organizations promoting peace, social justice, racial harmony, environment, and pro-democracy reforms. A former Co-Chair, of the Maryland Green Party, Bob was nominated by Green Party as candidate for U.S. Congress in 2002, but was kept off ballot by Maryland law that was later overturned as unconstitutional. |
Bob�s priorities are to support education, oppose the harmful "war against terrorism" by replacing it with an intelligent foreign policy of nonviolence, and the rule of law. Bob supports equal rights for all, opposes fast track and opposes federal funding for superhighway construction in Maryland. With regard to health care, Bob supports affordable health care for all, controlled by local communities, with federal assistance as needed. Bob believes that everyone is entitled to all types of health care (dental, mental, etc.). Bob also believes that we should stop criminalizing addiction and end the misguided "war on drugs."
Bob supports the reduction of our reliance on fossil fuels, the promotion of clean water and clean air, the conservation of natural areas, funding for the development of solar energy and alternative-fuel vehicles, preservation of wilderness habitat, and ending the encroachment by private companies into national reserves, forests, and parks.
