The Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale, the Green Party candidate, offered sanctuary in the Reformed Church of Highland Park to Arthur Jemmy and his wife, Silfia Tobing, last week. They fear they'll join seven other Indonesians in New Jersey who were deported and four others who left on their own as Immigration and Customs Enforcement reviewed their status this year.

Syracuse Needs a Marshall Plan to Address Poverty Crisis

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Mayor of Syracuse, called today for a state–and county–funded Marshall Plan to rebuild the city's high poverty neighborhoods.

ENDORSEMENT: Lapham would bring analytical, skeptical approach to Common Council

Ben Lapham finds the meetings of the Glens Falls Common Council "perfunctory" and suggests the unity ticket being promoted by three Republicans and three Democrats now on the board is not a good thing. He has a point. We'd much prefer some skepticism and dissension on the Common Council than a uniformity of views that lacks the energy and creativity of constructive dialogue and occasional disagreements. Continue reading

Detroit Election Hearing Set For Friday, October 13th

  Anita Belle, a challenger in the August 8, 2017 Election, researched that 1,175 registered voters used addresses that were vacant lots owned by the Detroit Land Bank. Belle presents evidence from the voter histories of that election that no one in the voter histories provided to her voted from the vacant lots, but 1,091 voter histories were missing according to the official election results. Belle further found that 118 people, (49 absentees and 69 precinct walk-ins), registered to vote from a vacant lot were allowed to cast ballots using other addresses, all in City Council District 1. Belle alleges that the Defendants committed election fraud by unlawfully permitting these voters to vote in precincts other than where they were registered to vote. Continue reading

Help Elston McCowan be the 1st Green Candidate to defeat a Democrat in Missouri

Elston McCowan received 37% of the vote against his Ward 2 Democratic Party opponent in 2015. The incumbent was a Democrat who had name recognition in an overwhelmingly Democrat ward of St. Louis City. This year the incumbent left to take a position in the new mayor's government and Elston is better known than the candidate nominated by the Democrats. Many in Ward 2 are fed up with the Democrats failing to stand up for their community and have shown with their votes that they are willing to break with the Democratic Party. Dozens have already signed up to work for Elston. If he wins the November 7 election, he will not only be the first Green to defeat a Democrat in a partisan Missouri race, but (likely) the first black Green to defeat a Democrat anywhere. Continue reading
