Keep Up the Good Work on Jill Stein’s Campaign11.19.16

GPOP Election Operations Working (EOW) Group
Report #18, October 20, 2016

Keep up the good work, Green Party Representative!
I know that you have all been working hard on the Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka Campaign for President/Vice President. Your work will be the key to success in our low-budget struggle for publicity. Five Green Party Representatives demonstrated outside the Corporate Parties’ Presidential Debate at Hofstra University on September 26.
I am glad that so many of you have helped with flyering door-to-door and with leafleting at public events. We have already used 2,600 flyers to cover 13 polling divisions, and our future literature drops are listed below. Please consider helping other Representatives distribute Jill Stein literature in their neighborhoods. This report will bring you up to date on what has happened since Report #17 which you received on September 6.

Task: Recruit Green Party Candidates
The Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA) is creating a Green Wave Committee to recruit candidates for future elections. Since we already have a year’s experience in this area, it would be good to have a Green Party Representative participate on the Green Wave Committee. Please let me know if you would like to be our delegate, and I will introduce you to the Green Wave co-chairs.

Task: Organize Campaign Workers
Since my last report, the Election Operations Working (EOW) Group has lost several Representatives, but three others have joined us as new Representatives: Kassie (Haddington), Cheri (Fairhill), and Robert (Kingsessing). Thank you all for your interest in the Green Party and in our candidates Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka. We now have 24 Green Party Representatives.
On coming weekends there will be more literature drops scheduled to publicize the Stein/Baraka Campaign:

SATURDAY, October 22
1:00 pm, meet outside Vivek’s house, 635 North Fifth Street in Center City East.
3:00 pm, meet outside Chris D’s house, 2917 North Sixth Street in Fishtown.
SUNDAY, October 23
1:00 pm, meet outside Chris R’s house, 431 West Rittenhouse Street in Germantown.
3:00 pm, meet outside Beverly’s house, 4350 Freeland Avenue in Roxborough.
SATURDAY, October 29
1:00 pm, meet outside Erik’s house, 6417 Lawnton Avenue in Fern Rock.
3:00 pm, meet outside Detrice Nicole’s house, 1130 West Rockland Street in Fern Rock.
SUNDAY, October 30
1:00 pm, meet outside Cheri’s house, 2114 Hancock Street in Fairhill.
SATURDAY, November 5
JILL STEIN IN PHILADELPHIA.

SUNDAY, November 6
1:00 pm, meet outside Kassie’s house, 1314 North 58th Street in Haddington.
3:00 pm, meet outside Robert’s house, 5109 Kingsessing Avenue, in Kingsessing.

Task: Build an Infrastructure to Win Elections
I am sorry to tell you that the GPOP Outreach Working Group has fallen into disarray. Some members of that short-lived organization have been working on publicity for the Stein/Baraka Campaign through Immediate Action for Jill Stein. Perhaps, following the General Election, some of those Green Party Representatives will devote their energy to reviving our Outreach Working Group.
Thank you so much for all you have done as a Green Party Representative.
It is Good to be Green,
Chris Robinson, 215-843-4256
Membership Secretary
Green Party of Philadelphia

PS: Members of the GPOP EOW Group are called “Green Party Representatives.” According to a motion approved by the GPOP membership on September 30, 2015, the EOW Group has three tasks: “recruiting Green Party candidates who will campaign for office; organizing people to work on those campaigns; and building an infrastructure that will be able to win electoral campaigns.”

Philadelphia 2016 Vote Total11.09.16

November 9, 2016
Hello, Green Party Member or Friend.

Thank you for voting Green yesterday. Thank you, also, for all of your work for our state-wide ticket.

I want to call your attention to our 16 Green Party Representatives who joined me in volunteering at their own polling places for our candidates: Vivek Ananthan (Northern Liberties); Joan Cercero (Germantown); Bernadette Marie Cronin-Geller and Beverley Rolfsmeyer (Roxborough); Khummit Hatshepsitu (Wynnefield); Cheri Honkala (Fishtown); Robert Jaffe (Kingsessing); Hillary Kane (Cedar Park); Ian McShea and Ernest Schulte (Wister); Natasha Minkovsky (Mayfair); Cheryl Molle (Holmsburg); Denice Nicole Mooring (Fern Rock); James Robertson (University City); Charles Sherrouse (Oxford Circle East); and Kassie Stanford (Haddington). When you meet them, please thank these dedicated Green Party Representatives for the hours they spent educating voters and building support for our candidates.

The positive effect of having 17 Green Party Representaties can be seen in the tentative results at the polls. State-wide Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka received 48,341 votes, which was 0.8 percent. Of that total, 6,452 votes came from Philadelphia, which was one percent of the Philadelphia vote.
Down the PA ballot, Jay Sweeney, the Green Party candidate for auditor, received 154,019 votes, which was 2.7 percent of the total vote. Philadelphia’s own Kristin Combs, the Green Party candidate for treasurer, received 163,035 votes, which was 2.9 percent of the total vote.

The only way for the Green Party to become a major political party is for you to help. Please volunteer today become a Green Party Representative for the 2017 election cycle.

It is Good to be Green!
