Report from WI Green Party Spring Gathering 2018

Our Spring Gathering in Stevens Point was a great step forward for the WIGP. We endorsed candidates, updated our platform, revised our bylaws, and left the meeting in a stronger position to build Wisconsin’s party for people, planet and peace over profit.

We discussed and voted on substantial changes to our state party platform, including new planks on election integrity, tuition-free public higher education, criminal justice and police reform, immigration reform, affordable housing, clean drinking water, Great Lakes protection, and more. We will post the full updated platform soon - stay tuned.

We also revised our party’s bylaws, making a number of changes recommended by members of our Structure Team to improve the effectiveness of our state party. We will be posting our updated bylaws soon.

At the end of the day, we heard from candidates seeking our nomination and members were able to ask questions and engage in spirited discussion. We voted to endorse the following candidates:

Michael White for Governor

Tiffany Anderson for Lt. Governor

Brad Karas for Secretary of State

Nathan Pelkey for State Treasurer

Ken Yorgan for US House of Representatives, District 1

Aaron Camacho for State Senate, District 31

We’re excited to have such a strong slate of candidates - now we need help getting them on the ballot!

We have until June 1st to gather thousands of signatures to put our endorsed candidates on the ballot - please click here to volunteer if you’re willing to help gather signatures, whether 10 or 100.

This Saturday May 5th is a nationwide “Green Wave” where Greens across the country will be out volunteering for local campaigns. Help us gather signatures and be a part of the Green Wave!
