Cynthia McKinney & Rosa Clemente,
Green Party Presidential & Vice Presidential Candidates,
on the ballot in New York State

The Green Party of New York State is proud to have Cynthia McKinney & Rosa Clemente on the ballot as the party’s Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates for 2008. McKinney and Clemente have now qualified for Green Party ballot lines in 32 states with the state of Vermont poised to become the next one.

McKinney, a former six-term Congresswoman from Georgia, left the Democratic Party in March of 2007 over the Democratic leadership’s complicity in perpetuating the illegal war in Iraq and their refusal to call for an independent investigation of the events of Sept 11, 2001. Her running mate, VP candidate Rosa Clemente, is a well known Hip Hop journalist and community organizer. Clemente holds degrees from two New York State universities, Cornell in Ithaca and the State University in Albany.  “These two dynamic women are making history by being the first all female presidential ticket in the United States,” said Gloria Mattera, Co-chair, Green Party of New York State.

The McKinney/Clement platform will highlight issues such as single payer health care, immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan, an independent investigation into 9/11 and bold solutions to address the climate crisis that do not compromise the environment and our health through increasing nuclear power
and coal production. “In contrast to both the Democratic and Republican candidates, the Green Party candidates are committed to eliminating all additional war funding and are against the use of preemptive military force,” said Evergreen Chou from the Power to the People Campaign in New York.

McKinney and Clemente will address the climate crisis by calling for far-reaching short-term and long-term cuts in greenhouse gas emissions in addition to promoting conservation programs to cut US energy consumption.  Where both Obama and McCain propose widespread conversion to bio fuels that require agricultural land needed for food production, the Green Party Presidential slate will enact a program of widespread economic reorganization that will create millions of new jobs in conservation and conversion to safe, clean energy sources. Our candidates oppose nuclear energy, which creates huge amounts of toxic waste and multiple security risks, and off-shore drilling, and favor a ban on new coal fired-power plants and all mountaintop coal removal.

“The Green Party in New York is preparing to launch a vibrant, statewide campaign for Cynthia McKinney and Rosa Clemente with personal appearances in several cities around New York,” said Mattera.
