Malachy McCourt, who was nominated by the Green Party of NY State (GPNYS) at their May 20th convention, is an author and activist. He is known for being a host on WBAI FM radio from NYC.

In addition, Suffolk Greens may also petition to become State Committee members, so they can represent their area at GPNYS. Petitions and details will be available for this opportunity as well.

The Green Party is an alternative to the Democrats and Republicans, an alternative to politics as usual. Green Party candidates do not accept contributions from corporations. The Four Pillars of the Green Party are: Grassroots Democracy; Non-violence/Peace; Social and Economic Justice; and Ecological Wisdom.

Voters may join the Green Party by checking the box that says "other" on a voter registration form, and writing in the word "Green." There are currently 36,141 registered Greens in New York state, and the numbers are growing. As a party devoted to diversity and grassroots democracy, there are many opportunities to volunteer; run for office; and serve in various committees at the local, state and national level.
