Thought about running for office?
Have you thought about running for office? Even if you haven’t, consider the following: Americans are hungry for new voices outside the political establishment. National polls show that roughly 60% of Americans - including over 70% of millennials - agree that we need a new major party.
With local elections coming up in Spring, now is the perfect time to think about running for office with the Wisconsin Green Party to help build the movement for people, planet and peace from the grassroots up.
The need has never been greater for real solutions to the urgent problems in our communities and our world, many of which are boiling over into full-blown crises; but neither corporate-funded party is demonstrating the values and vision we need to revolutionize American politics.
There’s never been a better time for people of integrity to join together and build the new party our country so desperately needs. The Green Party can seize this moment to bring about the transformation we need at every level, starting with our local governments.
At the local level, Greens in Wisconsin have won over 50% of the races they’ve entered. Running more candidates at the local level will not only make a difference in our communities, it will also help build the critical mass we need to win higher office and turn our values of peace, justice, democracy and ecology into reality.
It will also strengthen the growing movement to fix our broken electoral system with reforms like ranked choice voting, proportional representation, and publicly financed elections.
A shocking number of elections - especially at the local level - go uncontested, which means even more opportunities for concerned citizens to make an impact.
If you’re willing to consider running for office to build the movement for people, planet, and peace, the Wisconsin Greens want to talk with you!
Let us know if you're considering a run for office and we’ll get in touch about the next steps.
The period for signature gathering to get on the ballot for local races is open now until January 2nd.
Building a bridge to the better world we know is possible begins whenever you’re ready!
Co-chair, Wisconsin Green Party
