IL: NYT Profiles LeAlan Jones

Via Green Party Watch:
The New York Times on Friday has a profile piece on US Senate candidate LeAlan Jones, A Candidate Takes an Unlikely Green Path:

As a boy growing up in the long shadow of the Ida B. Wells public housing development, LeAlan Jones, the Illinois Green Party candidate for the United States Senate, learned at an early age to ignore naysayers. “If you come from the ghetto, people are always doubting you,” Mr. Jones said. “I never listened to them. I was too busy.”
