Madelyn Hoffman responds to Cory Booker withdrawal from presidential race

FLANDERS, NJ – “And now there is only one candidate Booker, ... the candidate for U.S. Senate” said Madelyn Hoffman. “We get why he dropped out. If anyone knows about the difficulties of competing on a level playing field in the U.S. electoral system, it’s the Green Party. We know all too well the story of being left out of important debates, presidential or otherwise, because we haven’t raised enough money or scored high enough in ‘polls’.

Lisa Savage issues statement on BIW $45 million tax break

GRAY, Me – In response to reports last week that top Democratic lawmakers in Maine are questioning a $45 million tax break for Bath Iron Works (BIW), US Senate candidate Lisa Savage issued the following statement: Why would our state give BIW/General Dynamics Corporation a $45 million tax cut in the first place?

Rent Reduction Now!

Too many people are out on the street, and even children are worried that their family could be next.  That’s why our Green Party campaign for Congress is calling for a bold new policy: National Rent Reduction. Rent shouldn't be more than 15% of a family’s income (Californians now pay around 40% of income on rent).  Continue reading

State of the State: Greens Say Cuomo Fiddles While Planet Burns

ALBANY, NY – 1/8/2020 – Green Party of New York (GPNY) officers have released a statement responding to Governor Cuomo’s 2020 State of the State address, castigating New York’s top Democrat for ignoring real solutions to issues like the climate emergency and instead focusing on “small-bore, low-stakes reforms” that “pose no threat to his wealthy donors.” “Cuomo’s most ambitious move since his party’s takeover of the legislature last year was to install a commission to kill off minor parties in New York, under the guise of public campaign finance,” said GPNY Co-Chair Peter LaVenia.  Continue reading

No War With Iran
