James Olmsted commented on WIGP officer self-nomination 2014-10-15 13:17:49 -0500The LGBT. caucus is in need of persons who will work to update the Wisconsin platform which I think needs to be done. I have been actively involved with the Greens for over 3o years on all levels and on the email list with the National Lavender Green Party caucus. I am the contact person for the CC. 8th. congressional district and I will continue in that position if it remains unfilled at the Convention. Now is the time to politically reach out to the LGBT. Queer community by showing our support to them we can increase the Green Party membership. I have been doing that in the Green Bay area where i live by working on issues such as Marriage Equality, so please help me to show our Gay Pride by nominating me to the the WI. Lavender Greens caucus. Go Green!! Jim,PeaceOWL…

Available positions up for election at the 2016 Spring Gathering include both co-chair positions.
Here is the description of the co-chairs' duties from the WIGP Constitution:
The Co-Chairs. The Co-Chairs shall work together to coordinate the activities of the organization. The Co-Chairs are empowered to speak publicly for and in the name of the organization on issues of the day and the policies and positions of the organization between Coordinating Council meetings in accordance with our adopted Key Values and Platform. The Co-Chairs may convene Coordinating Council meetings as they deem necessary and must do so at the request of five (5) or more current Members of the Coordinating Council or ten (10) or more Members in good standing of the organization. Co-Chairs contemplating the issuance of statements or press releases not specifically covered by the Key Values or Platform should consult with a majority of the Coordinating Council prior to making any such statement.
