Update - We Have Lawn Signs!

Yes, that's right. We have 35, Union Made, Hawkins for Governor lawn signs ready to go up once the primary election is over. We may be able to get more, but for right now, we have 35 that we would like to get in as many high visibility places as possible. If your house is one and you'd like a Hawkins for Governor lawn sign, please let us know ASAP!!!

Don't forget to spread the word about our candidates. E-mail, Facebook, the works! The Green Party is constantly uploading videos of Howie and all the other candidates on issues that are important to us. http://www.gpnys.com.

The campaign also needs money for more lawn signs, ads, bumper stickers ,etc. You can contribute at the state website as well.


Thanks to everyone who came out for the Labor Day Parade! We had a blast reminding everyone which party truly supports labor, including the striking workers at Motts.

Get ready for our next big holiday activity. Who likes Halloween? We're gearing up for a special Halloween activity to help our candidates as well as the local party. Stay tuned!


We've just started our mission of going door-to-door to talk to every registered Green in Monroe County. Would you like to help? If you have a Saturday or Sunday afternoon free, join us in helping spread the word about getting our ballot status back and getting more Greens involved in the democratic (small d) process. E-mail or call for more info.


What else can you do to help promote the Green Party and our candidates?

*Have a house party.
*Hand out campaign literature at the public market or other farmer's market.
*Talk to your friends, family and neighbors about the Green Party.
*Write letters to the editor or write comments on articles online about Howie Hawkins, the Green slate and the local Green Party.
*Spread the word about our new podcast called GreenLine. It's at www.greenlinepodcast.com, or you can listen to it at our website www.gpomc.org and soon available on iTunes!


Why is a vibrant, active Green Party so important? It was just brought to our attention that from 2005-2009, 54% of all elections in Monroe County went uncontested. Only one party showed up. It is time for a true alternative to what we have!


Don't forget about our social networking outlets!
