    I would be interested in becoming the second representative for District 7. I see there is only one representative and I live within the qualified area.

    For the 7th Congressional District: I think I would be a good fit for this position because I have professional organizing experience and I received 3600 pro Green Party votes for the 7th Congressional District out of approximately 265,000 cast (without campaigning due to lack of funds).

    CD2 Coordinating Council

    I have been affiliated with the Green Party since the mid 90s. and have worked to publicize and gain membership through street work and online activism.

    I stand by the ten key values.

    I have been very active on the local, state, and national level working for change in equality, environment, social justice, and peace. Although I was not able to have a directly active roll in the party in the past, other than short spurts, I now have the time needed to become an active member and help bring the party forward in the years to come.

    I feel very strongly that the State of Wisconsin and the nation can benefit greatly by electing Green Party representatives.

    The 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…
