Charles Pillsbury Politician

Charles A. Pillsbury is a mediator, lawyer, and community activist in New Haven, Connecticut, where he is the executive director of Community Mediation, Inc. He is the great-grandson of Charles Alfred Pillsbury, founder of the Pillsbury Company in 1872. He is also the source of the surname (and some perceived character traits) of the comic strip character Mike Doonesbury, created by Pillsbury's college roommate, Garry Trudeau. Pillsbury was born on October 5, 1947 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He received his BA from Yale University in 1972 and his JD from Boston University School of Law in 1975. Pillsbury became actively involved in politics when he worked on the presidential campaign of Democrat Eugene McCarthy in 1968 in New Hampshire. This surprised some because his father, George, was a Republican state senator and was actively supporting Richard Nixon, and because his grandfather, Wheelock Whitney, Sr., had previously run against Eugene McCarthy for U.S. Senate in 1964. Pillsbury is Co-Chair along with Alison Duncan of the Green Party's Dispute Resolution Committee.

Wikipedia article

The Green Party of the United States is a national political party in the United States founded in 1984 as a federation of state green parties. With its founding, the Green Party of the United States became the primary national Green organization in that country, eclipsing the Greens/Green Party USA, which emphasized non-electoral movement building. The Association of State Green Parties, a forerunner organization, first gained widespread public attention during Ralph Nader's United States presidential campaigns in 1996 and 2000. The party has no current representation in the U.S. House of Representatives nor the Senate and controls no governorships nor other state-wide elected positions. At the state legislature level, until 2014 the party controlled one seat in the Arkansas House of Representatives. A number of Greens around the United States hold positions as city and town council members and mayors.
