Independent Green to make run for Congress

SOUTHAVEN – Les Green said he can do the math, and the two mainstream political parties have “sent this country into trillions of dollars of debt.”

Green, a DeSoto County math teacher and father of three, says he’s making an independent run for Congress to ensure that future generations aren’t saddled with debt. He launched his candidacy for U.S. Representative from the First Congressional District this past week.

“Both parties promise they’ll do better – as soon as they regain power,” Green said. “But even then, nothing changes. They bicker while our nation stumbles. It’s time to do something different. It’s time for Independent leaders in Congress whose only interest is yours.”

The Waynesboro native has lived in DeSoto County for more than 15 years, and he said his family has roots in DeSoto County stretching back more than 100 years.
