Green Party of Santa Clara August 2018 Newsletter
The Green Party of Santa Clara County is kicking it into high gear campaigning for our THREE Green congressional candidates that have passed the Top Two hurdle and are on the November ballot. THIS IS HISTORICAL FOLKS!
It's a rare opportunity for us to get a Green into congress to bring our values and demand to light. Imagine what a corporate-free congress could do for "We The People"!
When either of the corporatist parties claim they can clear the swamp they are talking about their own corporatist candidates. Clean Greens candidates are incorruptible!
PLEASE Join us in volunteering, donating and advocating for all three of our candidates. and spread the sword about Green New Deal. Below are short features on each candidate so you can get to know them better. Check out the great videos and interview and sign up to volunteer for phone banking for Kenneth and Rodolfo.
