Call for Candidates
Run for office as a Green in 2018
The Green Party of Ohio Calls for Candidates
The Green Party is looking for progressives to run for elected office in 2018. The Governor, Secretary of State, and other statewide offices are up for election. Seats in the US Congress, the Ohio State Senate and House of Representatives and other local offices are also up for election. To be competitive for these seats candidates need to begin their campaigns as early as possible.
Green office holders in 23 states and the District of Columbia are hard at work for the voters who elected them. They are creating public policy on important issues including civil rights, a living wage, affordable housing, alternative voting systems, peace, and the environment. They are opposing urban sprawl, fracking, and expansion of corporate power. Green office holders ran to make an immediate impact on their communities as town council members, county commissioners, and school board members. These Greens reached out to voters of diverse backgrounds and brought together coalitions of community organizations and individuals to begin to reclaim their local governments.
If you or someone you know is thinking of running, please contact your local Green Party or the Candidates Committee of the Green Party of Ohio. All across the country hundreds of Green Party candidates will be challenging the two corporate parties. This will be a great time for someone to learn the art of running for office and a smart, energetic person could win. We are looking for people who are under-represented in elective office, women, African Americans, Hispanic, Asian Americans, LGTBQA+ community, people with disabilities and other minorities.
We are also looking for people to work with the candidates as campaign managers and volunteers.
