This should come as no surprise to anyone: Karas is a member of the Green Party who campaigned on McKinney's behalf.
On the Green Party Watch website, McKinney is quoted today as saying:
Racine is lucky to have Pete Karas as a candidate for mayor and will be even luckier when he becomes mayor. Now that’s the kind of change we can believe in.
Secure that kind of future for Racine. Let Racine become the beacon for sustainability and community that we so desperately need in these times.
I know Pete Karas and trust him. Please donate what you can to Pete now.
