This information is provided by the candidate
Political independence, internal democracy, membership empowerment, and leadership accountability.Political Independence. I will work to keep the Green Party independent of money-driven corporate parties. I reject lesser-evilism, and oppose endorsement of, or fusion with, corporate parties or their candidates.
Internal Democracy. As I support greater democracy in our society, I support it within the Green Party. I advocate fair, competitive elections, ranked choice voting, and proportional representation. I advocate democratic processes for internal decision-making. I encourage contested elections for Green Party county councils.
Membership Empowerment. Empowerment of party membership begins with better communication between elected and appointed leaders of the party, party activists, and the party's general membership. I encourage the use of technology to improve that communication, with enforceable standards of respectful and civil discourse.
Leadership Accountability. I advocate transparency of process and finances. I support the principles of open party governance, as embodied in the Brown Act. I insist on the highest ethical standards within the Green Party, with adherence to party bylaws, and complete and open reporting of all financial transactions.
