Questions & Answers

1. What would you do to increase the number of voters registered in your party?

In a word, proselytize. Present the Green Party platform at community meetings and events, make personal contacts with prospective voters.

2. What would you do to help the campaigns of candidates of your party?

Precinct walking, phone banking,posting signs.

3. Why did you become a member of this political party?

Upon retiring I looked around for a place to contribute and to participate. With three of the Green Party's platform entries re single payer universal health care, public financing of campaigns, and reduction of the military budget it was virtually love at first sight.

Further considerations such as living wage, equal pay for equal work, overall economic justice were details in the Green Party platform revealed that the Green Party's basic concerns indicated a concern for the populace.

That cemented it. And as additional 'freebies' we have the concern and care for the environment.

Need I say more?
