On Tuesday morning, Randy Paul’s family relayed the news of his passing.
In the last two and a half years, Paul has been covered by The B Square in connection with at least two significant issues. One was his effort to reorganize the local Green Party. The other was his fight to ensure that polling sites for the 2020 elections were accessible.
The start of the Green Party reorganization came during pre-pandemic days. I remember meeting Paul for breakfast at the Village Deli to talk about it.
He managed to pay the check for our table before I noticed it was done. I did not want to be on the wrong side of the ledger with Paul, and he agreed he’d let me pay for breakfast next time. The pandemic prevented any next time.
So now I will have to find another way to make good on that debt—which was a plate of biscuits and gravy.
