Green Party Co-Chair receives award for leadership in drug law reform

The Green Party congratulates Connecticut Green and newly elected Green Party of the United States Steering Committee Co-Chair Clifford Thornton on an award he received from the Drug Policy Alliance http://www.drugpolicy.orgfor his leadership in the movement to reform drug laws.

Mr. Thornton, co-founder of the drug law reform organization Efficacy, Inc. http://www.Efficacy-online.org, is a national co-chair of the Green Party of the United States. In 2006, he ran on the Green Party ticket for governor of Connecticut.

“Cliff Thornton’s work for the reform of US drug policy is in line with Green opposition to the War on Drugs, unjust and draconian drug laws, and the use of drug laws to fill up prison cells with black, brown, poor, and young Americans. We’re proud that Cliff is a member of the Green Party,” said Alfred Molison, co-chair of the Green Party’s national Black Caucus http://gpblackcaucus.blogspot.com.

Not all seven of the candidates will be on the ballot in every state where Greens are participating in primaries. In states where deadlines have already passed, most but not all of the campaigns have submitted required petitions with valid signatures to their respective elections offices.

Ballot Access Arizona

Arizona is the next state on the Ballot Access Committee list. Arizona has been working to get signatures for many months and has until March 1st to turn them in to the various County Election Offices. The committee sees two ways to help Arizona: 1) help mobilize and coordinate volunteers to go to Arizona to physically help get signatures and 2) raise revenue to help pay for professional signature gatherers. The signature goal is 28,000 and Arizona currently has approximately 8000 in hand. You can download a copy of the petition and complete instructions by going to the Arizona web site:http://www.azgp.org
