Have you considered running for office?

RunForOffice_Ursula_Rozum.jpgHave you thought about running for office as a Green candidate? Even if you haven’t, consider the following: Americans have never been closer to rebellion against the political establishment. Millions are fed up with the sold-out Democratic and Republican parties, and looking for a new politics with integrity, values, and vision. This isn’t just a feeling in the air; national polls show that a large majority of Americans agree that the establishment parties are failing us, and that a new major party is needed. In short, it's a great year to run for office as a Green.

Portage County: Bob Gifford Sustainability-based Campaign for District 10 County Board Seat

Adamant Green Party Member Bob L. Gifford has declared a local and sustainability-based campaign for residents of Portage County, Wisconsin. He is targeting his outreach to his wonderful community as he engages within government for the supervisory district 10 county board seat. 

Bobby L. Gifford (Parliamentum, Amen)

The unifying issue of this campaign is sustainability for Portage County, WI. This term is the basis of the "eco-municipality" movement to which Stevens Point, WI subscribed to in 2007; endorsed by the Wisconsin Green Party in that year. In a sustainable society you do not allow systematic inequality, poverty or permanent joblessness. You do not constantly encroach on nature- building up pollutants in the environment.

Bob spoke with Town of Hull Chair: John Holdridge, asking which issues concern Hull residents. The number one issue was groundwater protection. The situation with Well #11 should not have developed, had the two municipalities been cooperating and thinking sustainably with emphasis on environmental precautions regarding the best in mind for our citizens. On his suggestion, protection of private wells is a key issue for the County Board to address. It is administratively sloppy to have the current system of real estate development dependent on home ownership with private wells, given the reason of the current official inability to protect water quantity and quality in those wells.
