Mary Cal Hollis

The Socialist Party nominee whose also a special education teacher in the Boulder, Colorado Public Schools

When voters go to the polls this November, they’ll be puzzled to discover that in many states a half a dozen or more candidates for President will be on the ballot. Most of these candidates usually get little or no media exposure and have little chance of influencing the outcome of election. But,they do represent alternative approaches to politics, and they are definitely not stereotypical politicians. In this second in a series of interviews with non-major party candidates for President, Pacifica National Affairs Correspondent Larry Bensky talks with Mary Cal Hollis, the Socialist Party nominee whose also a special education teacher in the Boulder, Colorado Public Schools.
