Jules Mermelstein is on the PA Ballot

Dear Green Party Representative.

Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP) Representatives — like you — have finished collecting nomination signatures for Jules Mermelstein for Judge of Superior Court. We were successful! Thanks to you, Jules received 4,204 signatures (588 from Philadelphia), more than enough to get on the ballot.
We are now transferring into campaign mode, looking forward to the General Election on November 7. Jules Mermelstein and the Green Party will need you, as a Green Party Representative, to volunteer at your polling place. Please see below for more details.
The rest of Report #5 will bring you up to date on what has happened since Report #4 was posted to you on May 23.

Task: Organize Campaign Workers
Jules Mermelstein has now campaigned in Philadelphia three times (most recently on 7/8), and you have had an opportunity to shake his hand, to ask him questions, and to volunteer for his campaign.
Right now, we have six Green Party Representative (in addition to myself) who have already volunteered to work for Jules’ election: Scott in Queen Village; Belinda in Chestnut Hill; Hillary in Cedar Park; Christian in Wynnefield; Charles in Oxford Circle; Chris in Germantown; and Olivia in Garden Court.
Please contact me today (email or telephone) if you are ready to join the other Green Party Representatives.

Task: Recruit Green Party Candidates

In addition the Jules, we now have 14 Green Party candidates running for office in Pennsylvania. Please visit Green Wave Candidates for more information about these Greens.
One of these candidates is Green Party Representative, Olivia Faison, who is running for Inspector of Elections at her polling place in Garden Court, West Philadelphia.
It is now time for you, as a Green Party Representative, to consider running for office in 2018. Your PA Representative will be running for re-election. 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.

Task: Build an Infrastructure to Win Elections
There are 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 volunteering at your polling place on Tuesday, November 7.

It is Good to be Green,
Chris Robinson, 215-843-4256
Membership Secretary

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.”
