Kurland and Davenport Renew Commitment to Literacy Education After Judge’s Ruling

Michigan Green Party candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, Jennifer V. Kurland and Charin H. Davenport, renewed their campaign’s promise to provide all students in Michigan with the tools to succeed in a state economy that is diverse and complex. Fair and equitable funding of Michigan’s public schools is a cornerstone of their “Green New Deal for Michigan” that will ensure classroom teachers in high poverty districts will be equipped and empowered to give their students the same opportunities that exist in other districts. Over the course of several decades, researchers have consistently reported that students are better able to learn in classrooms with new textbooks, up-to-date technology, a safe learning environment, and a lowered student-to-teacher ratio.

Brian White withdraws

It is with great sadness that I announce that I am permanently suspending my campaign for State Senate.  My responsibilities in fighting for the rights of people with disabilities to live in the most independent setting possible has not allowed me to put forth the effort needed to sustain a campaign that is worthy of the voters of the 55th District.  Voting is important as part of an overall strategy to achieve things we all deserve:  universal health care, reversing climate change, dismantling systemic racism, and more.  Please keep this in mind this November.  Vote for the candidate you feel will best fight for these things.  If there isn’t a candidate you feel will do this, please write-in a name to show that you choose “none of the above”.  Continue reading

Syracuse, NY – We need your help to raise an additional $7,000 in the next 7 days – or $1,000 a day.. We have to file our first financial report with the State Board of Elections based on how much we have raised by July 12. This would bring Howie Hawkins’s fundraising total to $25,000 – behind where we were 4 years ago, but a respectable number for a third party candidate, especially in light of the media "Green Out" he has been facing. Fundraising is the prime thing that most of the media covers. They use it to justify the coverage they give – or don’t give - to the various candidates. Continue reading
