Michigan Greens Issue a Response to Snyder's Last State of the State Speech
The Green Party of Michigan has issued a response to Rick Snyder's final "State of the State" speech Tuesday night.
The 15-minute video, a special episode of the recurring "In the Green" program with host Clyde Shabazz, features GPMI Chair Sherry A. Wells and Jennifer V. Kurland, a candidate for the Green nomination to succeed Snyder as governor.
Wells introduces the founding principles of the Green Party, its Four Pillars -- Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice, Non-Violence, and Ecological Wisdom -- and explains how they are connected to major issues Michigan faces.
GREEN PARTY OF MICHIGAN

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Kurland discusses the Flint water crisis, on which she has already shared the results of six months of research with every member of the Legislature, as well as the impact of income inequality on Michigan education and the need for a Green New Deal to give Michigan workers jobs using the skills they have to help clean up the state's excessive share of the country's most polluted neighborhoods.
The text of Wells's remarks is on the party's Website.
GPMI's next statewide membership meeting will be Saturday, February 24 in the lower level training room at Community Rebuilders, 1120 Monroe NW, Grand Rapids.
