2009 Annual Green Party County Meeting

The Green Party of Suffolk will be holding its annual membership meeting on Saturday, November 14, 2009. It will start at 1pm at the Unitarian Universalist Society of South Suffolk at 28 Brentwood Road, Bay Shore, Long Island, NY 11706-8011.   The meeting is open to all registered Green Party members. Light refreshments will be served.  For more information about the Green Party, please contact Green Party of Suffolk Chair Roger Snyder at (631) 351-5763 or info@gpsuffolk.org.

“It is more important than ever to have the Green Party as an alternative to the Democratic and Republican Parties,” said Snyder.  “The majority of the US population supports an immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan and the institution of single-payer universal healthcare.  The Green Party supports these policies.  Both the Democratic and Republican Parties oppose these policies.  Unlike the Democratic and Republican parties, the Green Party will not accept corporate donations so it is free to support the will of voters.”

The Green Party of New York State is focused on the 2010 Governor’s race in order to regain its ballot line.  This countywide meeting will include a discussion about the Green Party member candidate poll and 2009 Green Party Statewide candidate convention.  “The last time it had ballot status, the Green Party in New York set the national record for running the most candidates in one election,” said Snyder.  When we regain ballot status we will again be able to run scores of candidates statewide to speak about progressive issues otherwise ignored by the corporate candidates and the corporate media.”

The meeting agenda will also include: a welcome to newly enrolled Green Party members; officer elections; and planning for 2010 activities. Attendees are welcome to bring flyers, petitions, and announcements for the literature table.  Green Party members involved with the county, state, and national party will be in attendance to answer questions.

The Green Party is an alternative party to the Democrats and Republicans. The four pillars of the Green Party are: Nonviolence/Peace; Grassroots Democracy; Social and Economic Justice; and Ecological Wisdom. You can enroll in the Green Party by checking the box marked “Other” on the voter registration form and writing in the word “Green” on the line next to it.
