Green Rainbow Party (GRP) Nominates Three Candidates for 2022 State Elections
SOUTH DEERFIELD, MA – On April 24, State Committee members voted unanimously to endorse and nominate current Becket Town Select Board member Michael Lavery as the GRP candidate for State Representative in the 3rd Berkshire District. They also endorsed and nominated two experienced campaigners from Holyoke to run as a slate of nominees for statewide constitutional offices: Juan Sanchez will make his second consecutive bid to unseat the long-serving Secretary of the Commonwealth and Gloria Caballero Roca will contend for the open position as State Auditor.
All three candidates gave remarkably cogent and issue-filled campaign speeches. 2022 promises to be an excellent year for Green-Rainbow electoral work in Massachusetts. Volunteers will have a wide variety of opportunities to participate in these campaigns.
In the months to come, be on the lookout for upcoming messages about how to join the slate nominating petitions signature-gathering effort, to make financial donations to the three candidates’ committees, and to put forth your own innovative ways of promoting our candidates and Green-Rainbow solutions to our state’s challenges.
