From all of us at Team Hoffman/Warburton, we would like to wish you a Happy Labor Day! As New Jersey reels from a historic pandemic, one in which corporations consolidated their wealth, politicians collected checks off their investments, and workers hardly got by, we find it imperative that workers build power in government to challenge the status quo. Our campaign team, which is composed entirely of students and low/middle income workers, regrets that our government has so poorly supported New Jersey's working and middle class communities through COVID-19. Of course, this is made that much worse as our communities recover from recent natural disasters, including flood waters and tornado outbreaks all across our state. It is especially relevant now that Madelyn Hoffman, and her running mate Heather Warburton are running this campaign around their key policy of a Real, Ecosocialist Green New Deal. Continue reading
Chester's First Green Party Challenger CHESTER, PA – Chester resident, community activist, and union member Kearni Warren is officially on the ballot in this Fall's showdown for Chester City Council. She is the first minor party candidate to ever challenge the Democratic regime. "I am extremely excited to enter this race as the grassroots voice of our community," Ms. Warren said. "Chester is my home, and it has been for generations. I grew up in the Ruth L. Bennett Homes with my mother, Rev. Bernice Warren, who instilled in me the values of a true Chester leader: respect, dignity, and most of all, truth. I am launching this campaign to restore Chester's leadership to these values."

For 40 plus years, direct and indirect military action in Afghanistan has led to a destabilization of a country which once valued and respected human rights and liberties. The U.S. funding of and training of the Mujahideen, later known as the Taliban, created a situation where the need to care for refugees and victims of our military occupation would be inevitable.

I never thought I'd be playing the prophet. But that's what it felt like at the last candidate forum. I was up on stage, talking about the latest grim forecast from that international panel of scientists, warning that we've passed numerous key irreversible tipping points, that we are locked in to a hotter future. But there's still time to make a difference if we take bold action now! We can still limit how bad it will be! Continue reading
Just after Independence Day, I was contacted by some local advocates for social and environmental justice. They asked if I would consider running for office as a "climate candidate," to highlight the need for action in the face of the climate crisis. I wanted to say no. I already have a full-time job. I try to do my part through activism. I'm comfortable in my routines. But humanity is facing a crisis of epic proportions, and I can't justify sticking with comfortable routines. I feel I must answer the call, put myself out there, and inject a sense of urgent ecological concern into our civic discourse. The climate crisis intersects with virtually everything, and should be at the forefront of our dialog and action. Continue reading

Something fishy was going on in Fair Haven Heights — and Patricia Kane was there to promise to get to the bottom of it. Kane showed up on the banks of the Quinnipiac River Thursday to announce she is running as a Green Party candidate for alder in Fair Haven Heights’ Ward 13, a seat currently held by Democrat Rosa Santana. The Republicans Thursday evening chose a candidate to run in Ward 13 as well this year: Deborah Reyes. Continue reading

I co-founded the Green Party of Minnesota in 1994 because Green values were (and are) my values. When I first ran for City Council in 2001, I highlighted four values of Ecological Wisdom, Social Justice, Peace and Democracy over and over again as I knocked doors across my Ward. While I was not elected on my first attempt, I didn’t give up and in 2005 I was elected as the only Green on the Minneapolis City Council — because those values rang true with my neighbors.
