May Update

Standard

Rock The Ballot event July 21st-22nd hosted by Green Party chapter, the primary is behind us let’s party Green for the general.  Portland Green Party endorsement meeting for General Election is tentatively scheduled for September’s monthly meeting on the 26th.  See our chapter’s calendar.

Greetings I’m Jorden Leonard.

The primary election saw Green Party member and first time candidate Patricia Burkett, Multnomah County #3, getting 24% of the vote, this was an awesome result but not enough to make it to the general election.  In fact only one of our endorsed local candidates has made it to the general election.  Incumbent Amanda Fritz, our 2nd choice for city council #1, edged out her well funded opponent Mary Nolan and they will face off again in the General.  Their results were so close that a Green Party endorsement could easily tip the general election one way or the other.  Let’s prepare well for an endorsement meeting for the General Election and see if we can get 50+ Greens voting in person.  To help prepare contact me.

Greens On Ballot Threatened!!! Register Online, no need to waste paper. Do it by July.

Last meeting (minutes) we reviewed how the primary election went, talked about the Rock The Ballot event (google group for planning), Seth Woolley updated us on his campaigns including his run for Secretary Of State (SOS) and suing SOS Kate Brown for trying to kick the Green Party off the ballot.  The work meeting started with Gina Ronning introducing an outline for our Restorative Justice campaign and then ended with an impromptu board meeting.

Also note Pacific Green Party state convention is coming up June 2nd in Salem.  Contact Seth Woolley or me if you need a ride.

At People’s Coop’s 7-9pm we are now regularly meeting every 4th Weds instead of every last Weds. See the proposed agenda.

The Portland Green Party is established to work for sustainability and conservation, peace, social justice, and grassroots democracy through the electoral system.
