McCowan has campaigned on pledges to bring funds to Ward 2 for improving parks, cleaning up alleys and streets and making home energy efficiency grants available for elders. Previous ward representatives have not pushed sufficiently to bring available monies to the ward.
As Vice-President of the St. Louis city NAACP, McCowan chairs its criminal justice and prison committees. He is pastor at the Star of Grace Missionary Baptist Church. McCowan is concerned with “food deserts” in north St. Louis and hopes to build community gardens and improve the food in the ward. He has been a union representative and has worked to improve treatment of prisoners.
McCowan is a pastor at the Star of Grace Missionary Baptist Church and the vice president of the St. Louis city chapter of the NAACP, where he chairs the criminal justice and prison committees. He has advocated for better treatment of prisoners and has experience as a union representative.
Of the 6850 city owned vacant lots over 93% are located in nine north side wards including Ward 2. A fierce opponent of gentrification, McCowan will bring together a consortium of public and private resources to establish Rebirth St. Louis, a non-profit enterprise dedicated to funding affordable housing, community businesses, solar gardens, urban farms and attractive parks while creating jobs at all skill levels.

Bryan Jimenez, the Green Party candidate for Mayor in the City of Albany, said today that he opposed Governor Cuomo's plan to build new two gas plants in Sheridan Hollow to power the State Plaza.
"We need to stop building any more fossil fuel infrastructure, including plants to burn fracked natural gas, and instead invest in 100% clean, renewable energy. I urge the Governor to halt this project and go back to the drawing board, focusing on how to use geothermal / heat pumps, solar, wind and energy efficiency to power the Capitol of New York.Read more

On Tuesday, August 29, 2017, Michael Cease was the winner of the Green Party Primary in Ward 6 of the City of Tucson Council Election. Cease defeated his primary opponent, Michael Oatman, with 64.71% of the vote (55 votes), versus 31.76% of the vote (27 votes) for Oatman. Mr. Cease will now move on to the November 7, 2017 General Election to face Republican challenger Mariano Rodriguez, and Democratic incumbent Steve Kozachik. While most municipalities in Arizona have non-partisan elections, Tucson is unique because its elections for mayor and city council are partisan (candidates may run with a party designation, or run as independent).
Michael Cease is the chairperson of the Green Party of Pima County (GPPC). Last year, he ran as the Green Party candidate for Pima County Recorder in the November 2016 General Election. He set a personal and Green Party record when he received 80,588 votes (22.20% of the vote).

Today we organize to fight and resist while we express solidarity with those communities who have been targeted by Trump during this election. All of the things we need--real living wage jobs-for-all through a Green New Deal, single-player universal health care, affordable housing, student debt relief and universal college education, a true end to police violence, termination of the war on drugs, dismantling the national surveillance state, ending US imperial foreign policy, and dealing with catastrophic climate change--require a radical, working class movement to win.Read more
