Vote Green Party for a Green Economy: Petitioning Started 7/6/10

The only way that the Green Party can regain ballot status in NY is to get 50,000 votes for their Governor candidate in 2010. This opportunity comes only once every four years, and it only applies to the Governor’s race. Gaining ballot status will enable the Green Party to run more peace candidates, more single-payer candidates, more anti-fracking candidates, and more sustainable energy candidates. The last time that the Green Party of New York State had ballot status it set the record for running the most Green candidates of any state.

Howie Hawkins for GPNYS Guv by Shawna ColeIt seems like every politician and interest group these days promises Green jobs, Green energy, a green economy.

Doesn’t it make sense to support the real thing? A Green New Deal with the Green Party (www.gpny.org) . Howie Hawkins for Governor, Gloria Mattera for Lt. Governor.

New York needs jobs now. For everyone.

The Greens want a Green New Deal to put New Yorkers back to work.

Green jobs building renewable energy, solar and wind power. Green homes, insulating old ones, cut energy use.

Reduce, reuse, recycle.

Green jobs building a real mass transit system, cleaning up our water and air, building parks and community centers,

A Green food system. Sustainable. Promoting organics, not petroleum-based fertilizers and pesticides. Supporting local farmers, not corporate agribusiness, factory farms.

Reducing our carbon footprint. Really cut carbon emissions, tax carbon use, not more corporate welfare games like carbon trading.

Focusing on living wage jobs and a better quality of life for all – not more wealth and profits for a few.

That is the Green agenda.

We need 50,000 votes for Governor to become an official party again. We need to collect 15,000 signatures from July 6 to August 17. You can volunteer and donate at _www.howiehawkins. org_ (http://www.howiehaw kins.org)

Please help build a Green world. Support real change.
