Dear Green Party Representative.

As our Fall Campaign comes to a close, I want to wish each of you success at your polling place on November 7. We have an excellent candidate, Jules Mermelstein, for Judge of PA Superior Court, and he will do well at polls where each of us volunteers for him. In September, Jules received the endorsement of the Pennsylvania State Education Association, which has 181,000 members in our state.
The rest of Report #7 will bring you up to date on what has happened since Report #6 was posted to you on September 18.

Task: Organize Campaign Workers
In coordination with Jules4Judge, Green Party Representatives like you have gone door-to-door in their divisions, and they plan to appear at the polls to ask their neighbors to “PUSH BUTTON #302 FIRST.” This is important because voters who begin by pushing their party button will not be able to vote for Jules. We will have ten Green Party Representative (including myself), volunteering at voting locations which include 20 divisions (precincts). When the returns are certified, I will let you know how our volunteers did.

Task: Build an Infrastructure to Win Elections
I have some good news to report. The GPOP membership created a Communications Working Group (CWG) at their September Membership Meeting and approved the CWG Statement of Purpose and Goals at the October Membership Meeting. Please visit the CWG page on our website for more information.
The current CWG members are Green Party Representatives Charles, Christian, Georgie, Jarrett and Margie. Please let me know if you would like to join the new CWG, to help with news releases, email contact with Green Party members and social media.
Here is an excellent opportunity for you to participate, become our recording secretary. Green Party Recording Secretary is an important office which involves much more than just taking minutes at meetings. Our Recording Secretary is a member of the GPOP City Committee and deeply involved in building the Green Party on a daily basis. Please let me know if you are interested in becoming our Recording Secretary – even if it is only on a trial basis.

Task: Recruit Green Party Candidates
The Green Party is 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.

Please let me know what you have been doing to build the Green Party.
It is Good to be Green,
Chris Robinson, 215-843-4256

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.”
