Lynne Serpe, Green Party nominee for New York city council, 22nd district, in the November 5, 2013 election, has qualified for $50,000 in public funding for her campaign. See this story from her web page.
Other candidates in the same race are Democrat Costa Constantinides, Republican Daniel Peterson, and independent candidate Danielle DeStefano. The district is in western Queens, and is centered on Astoria.
Serpe’s campaign is so active, someone went to the trouble of investigating her, and found out that she owns a small house in New Orleans and that she had registered in New Orleans some time ago to get a tax break, on the grounds that the New Orleans house is her primary residence. She no longer lives there and she has now changed her tax status in New Orleans. Thanks to Michael for this news.
