Green Party Annual Meeting

Posted by in News, politics

Well the Green Party Annual Meeting is underway in Chicago. On Thursday there were workshops and meetings of GP-US committees as well as state caucuses. The Presidential Nominating Convention is all day Saturday at the Chicago Symphony Center.

There are more workshops and caucuses scheduled for today, as well as Platform Hearings this morning (the Convention also votes on the GP-US platform). This afternoon the Green National Committee meets. The main items seem to be committee reports and the election of Steering Committee members (co-chairs and a treasurer).

At 7 pm there is the Presidential Candidate Forum. I had hoped to be able to blog live from there, but with limited phone and wifi access from the Palmer Hotel, this seems not likely (unless something changes). We will see about blogging from the Symphony Center from the convention.

Not a lot of news yet. Rosa Clemente being Cynthia McKinney’s VP pick was creating some buzz. I’m both a GNC representative from NY, and a delegate to the convention, so I’ll post updates of interest. -RS
