City Council Movement
The Green Party of Knox County has been courting the City Council Movement. They are seeking our support. We will decide at our next meeting if we want to endorse the movement. They are fielding several strong candidates in this years city council races.
Petition Drive for Ballot Access
The Green Party of Tennessee is conducting a petition drive to gain Party Status in Tennessee. If we get enough signatures then Green Candidates can be on the ballot with Green Party next to their name. The Ballot Access Laws in Tennessee are draconian and designed to keep new parties from forming and having a real voice in elected offices. You can download a copy of the petition at www.greenpartyoftennessee.org on the main page. Please share and help grow our democracy from the grassroots.
