Maria Kuriloff

The Green Fest planning committee and the Green community lost a key member on Wednesday. Our deepest sympathies to Ron.

I always enjoyed working on projects with Maria, but it took a few years of working with her for me to realize how well Maria worked with everyone. In her good-natured way, she treated everyone in a friendly, respectful manner and got everyone to work together and get things done. Maria made things happen. She contributed tremendously to the Green Party at every level. Just one example: It was Maria who convinced Malachy McCourt to be our gubernatorial candidate in 2006.

We will have a tribute to Maria at Green Fest in August. Please bring your remembrances to share and post them now on the website set up by her son Matthew,
