A lot of Green Party happenings in Monroe County lately. We hope you've been following it all. Let's start with our next Monthly Meeting!
Yes, it's been a while, but now we are back in the groove with our Monthly Meetings. It's this Monday, January 10th at 7pm at the Calvary St. Andrews Church in South Wedge. 68 Ashland Street to be exact. This meeting will feature a talk on Sustainable Communities. Our guests will be Chris Hartman from The Good Food Collective and Melissa Marquez, CEO of Genesee Federal Credit Union.
We will have childcare available as well, so don't let the little ones keep you from participating!
The meeting is free and open to the public. The church is wheelchair accessible. Please call or e-mail Dave if you need any other accommodations. (315-7687 / firstname.lastname@example.org)
Even if you cannot make it, please invite others you feel would be interested. It's time to create a Green presence in Rochester!
And yes, we will be discussing the upcoming Mayoral Election.
And speaking of the upcoming Mayoral Election... in spite of all the rumors, the Green Party does NOT have a candidate yet. One person announced that he is seeking the nomination, but that does not mean that he is the candidate, or even the "frontrunner". We are in the process of choosing a candidate so if you are interested, you have to download a questionnaire, fill it out and turn it in by January 16th. The following week will be interviews by the County Committee and the decision will be made the week after that. Let me repeat that...there is NO candidate yet. Download the questionnaire. It's at the top of the right column of this website.
Did you know that we now have a phone number and PO Box? Yep. You can call us at (585) 360-0313. And our PO Box is: PO Box 26235 Rochester, NY 14626 Now if you go on vacation, you can send us a postcard!
Most of you already know this, just because you're on this e-mail list, but you've been able to register Green in New York State for years. Pretty soon, the Green option will be on all Voter Registration cards, but until that time you can just check "other" and write Green in. So if you're not registered Green, it's time you did. If you're already Green, you can get your friends and family to hop on the Green wagon. You can get voter reg cards all over town or download one at http://www.elections.state.ny.us/NYSBOE/download/voting/voteform.pdf
