The Green Party is always looking for progressives to run for elected office. Green office holders across the country 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 are challenging the two corporate parties. This is a great opportunity 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, gays and lesbians, people with disabilities and other minorities. We are also looking for people to work with the candidates as campaign managers and volunteers.
