John Mertens says he’s running for senate because “apathy is not allowed.” Mertens is a tenured professor of Engineering at Trinity College. He says he’s got no interest in being a career politician, but that the two party system in American politics is broken. Mertens is chair of the Connecticut for Lieberman Party, a party now populated by Lieberman’s most outspoken critics. He’ll run on the Connecticut for Liebmerman party ticket, but he’s also seeking endorsements from the Greens, the Libertarians, and the Independents. Not a Democrat or Rebublican, Mertens says he’s a “problem solver.”
