Dear Green Party Representative.

Our Fall campaign has now begun, and we are looking forward to the General Election on November 7. We have almost completed distribution of GPOP flyers in every division where we have Green Party Representatives volunteering at their own polling place. This will be a giant help in convincing voters to push the electoral button for Jules Mermelstein for Judge of Superior Court.
The rest of Report #6 will bring you up to date on what has happened since Report #5 was posted to you on July 23.

Task: Organize Campaign Workers
Jules Mermelstein joined us at the Philadelphia Labor Day Parade. He also sent volunteers to help us reach out to voters at GreenFest. At both of these events, we were able to install the GPOP banner prominently and to distribute many GPOP flyers.
We have also recruited three new Green Party Representatives (Murielle in Queen Village, Denise in Frankford and Bernadette Marie in Andora). They will each volunteer at their own polling place for Jules. This brings our total to ten Green Party Representative (including myself), who have already volunteered to work for Jules’ election.
Please contact me today (email or telephone) if you are ready to become a Green Party Representatives.

Task: Recruit Green Party Candidates
We are still searching for people to run in 2018 as Green Party candidates for PA State Representative. Your State Representative will be running for re-election next year. I hope you will consider running against them as a Green Party candidate seeking single-payer healthcare, reparations for slavery, an end to fracking, a basic universal income, and an end mass incarceration.
I have pushed this search vigorously with other movement organizations, and I hope that you have also been mentioning it to people you know.

Task: Build an Infrastructure to Win Elections
There are still openings for Green Party Representatives who are interested in two important tasks: building media relations and coordinating affiliations with progressive movements. If you are interested in learning either of these skills, please contact me.

Also, please don’t forget to contact me about becoming a Green Party Representative at your polling place on Tuesday, November 7.
It is Good to be Green,
