I’m still adding names to the 2018 Progressive Candidate List. One of the latest may be a name with which you’re familiar: Dylan Ratigan. The former MSNBC host is running for Congress in New York’s rural “North Country” 21st district.

In an interview with 7 News at Noon anchor Jeff Cole to discuss his campaign, Ratigan outlines how he will use his understanding of finance, economics, money, and power to fight for the interests of everyday people. Underlying that purpose, Ratigan is funding his campaign with small dollars.

basing my fund raising on small-dollar, broad-based fund raising because that is the only way you can actually run a campaign that doesn’t make you beholden to those who finance you. The fact of the matter is, it’s only by being able to exempt yourself from that control that you can actually represent the interests of your people.

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.


Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
