    I’d like to self-nominate for National Committee Representative. As co-chair of the WIGP, and having worked on campaigns for Jill Stein, Howie Hawkins, Lisa Savage, and others, I’ve been very active building the Green Party in Wisconsin and nationally. Now I’m ready to take my skills, experience, and commitment to the National Committee to help Green Party US grow into the next major party in the United States.

    WIGP officer self-nomination

    Open positions to be elected at the 2020 Fall Gathering:

    1 Co-Chair (2 year term, must have been a Green Party member in good standing for at least 1 year prior)

    Recording Secretary (1 year term)

    Correspondence Secretary (1 year term)

    Operations Treasurer (1 year term)

    Elections Treasurer (1 year term)

    2 National Committee Representatives (1 year term)

    2 National Committee Alternates (1 year term)

     

    Coordinating Council Representatives (1 year terms):

    The coordinating council meets once per month (usually by conference call/virtually) to make decisions about Green Party activities between our semi-annual membership meetings.  These representatives are often very active in the committees which handle decisions about elections, candidates, events, membership drives, building locals/caucuses/or districts, newsletters, media presence, Green Party materials, the platform, and more.

    Besides the 2 Co-Chairs, secretaries, and treasurers, members are elected from a variety of districts, locals, caucuses, and general at-large members for coordinating council representation:

    -8 Congressional District Representatives: Each congressional district is to elect one representative 

    -The Greater Milwaukee Green Party elects one representative

    -The Four Lakes Green Party elects one representative

    -8 At-large members from any district/local/or group are elected by the general membership

    No person can be elected for 2 seats or have more than 1 vote on the coordinating council.  For example, the Greater Milwaukee representative cannot be the same person as one of the 8 at-large or the district representation.  None of the officers (co-chairs, secretaries, or treasurers) can run for these positions because they are already on the coordinating council as officers.  National Committee representatives may run for these seats.

     

    Please identify the position(s) you are running for, and describe your experience with activism and/or the Green Party, as well as why you think you would be a good fit for this position in the box below.

    See our Officers and Committees page for descriptions of the roles and responsibilities of Officers and Coordinating Council Members.

    Thanks for your interest in building the Wisconsin Green Party!

  • Four Lakes Green Party: Stand against systemic racism, halt the Dane County jail project

    The Four Lakes Green Party has released the following statement:

    We, the Four Lakes Green Party, stand in solidarity with all those demonstrating for racial justice and striking against the disease of systemic racism and white supremacy infecting Wisconsin, and particularly Dane County. We call on Dane County to halt the jail-building project that exemplifies the perpetuation of systemic racism, and to redirect our resources from racist mass incarceration to investing in the well-being of historically oppressed communities.

  • How to write in votes for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker in WI

    You can still vote for Green Party Presidential and VP candidates Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker in Wisconsin by writing in your vote, even after the political establishment kept their names off the state ballot. Here's how:

    At the top of your ballot under "President/Vice President", find and fill in the bubble next to the write-in field below the other candidates, write "Howie Hawkins" on the "write-in (President)" line, and write "Angela Walker" on the "write-in (Vice President)" line. Examples:

    That's it! If you're voting by mail, make sure to have a witness sign your envelope.

    After all the efforts to suppress our votes this year, we want to make sure all our write-in votes are counted, so if you plan to write-in your vote for Howie Hawkins and Angela Walker, please sign our WI Green vote pledge now (you can sign the vote pledge without your name being public). We can use this information about how many people plan to write in a Green vote, and where they live, to hold election officials accountable for counting our votes.

    Here’s what the WIGP constitution has to say about the Coordinating Council in Article 3 Section 1:

    “Up to two members are from each of the eight congressional districts. Each member serves a 2-year term… These 8 (16 in first year) members will be nominated in their district meetings at the Fall Gathering. The election will take place at the full membership meeting.”
