Green News Daily Roundup - Morning Edition

The Camden NJ Green Party will be meeting in Collingswood, NJ June 5th at 7 PM at the library at Haddon and Frasier Avenues.

The Rev. Billy and the Church of Stop Shopping will deliver the invocation at a Green Party conference set for NYC this Saturday. You gotta check this one out. It includes presenters like Lynne Serpe, director of FairVote, Joel Kovel, Gloria Mattera, Mark Dunlea and several prominent NYC Greens, as well as what I assume are several prominent non-Greens. The event is set for Hunter College in Manhattan, 105 Lexington Avenue (between 68th and 69th Streets)from 9 AM until 6 PM, and is sponsored by the Green Party of Brooklyn.

That's all for now folks. More after a day's work.

A Green Mayor in St. Louis ?

Tuesday April 7, 2009 could be the first time a major US city elects a Green Party mayor. The candidate is Elston K. McCowan, who is Public Service Director of SEIU, Local 2000, and pastor of Star Grace Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis .

With support for McCowan surging, the major barriers to winning are [1] volunteer workers and [2] money. If you can join the dozens of Green Party workers during the last few days before the election, call 314-727-8554 to let us know you are coming. If you can donate, please visit mccowan4mayor.com

The Green Party of St. Louis is also running Alderperson candidates Tim Kaminski (Ward 7), Eugene Frison (Ward 9) and Ken Hollenbeck (Ward 13). McCowan and Frison are both black activists who have spent decades struggling for working people. Kaminski is a retired Committeeperson with United Autoworkers Local 110 and Hollenbeck is a retired Chief Steward of Communication Workers of America Local 6300.

The Greens have been publicizing important issues like lead poisoning since September 2008. The rate of childhood lead poisoning in St. Louis is five times the national average. The current Mayor, is more interested in replacing public schools with charter schools than in protecting children’s health.
