For Immediate Release
Saint Paul, MN -- The Green Party of Minnesota is pleased to announce the launch of its 2014 electoral campaign, “Greens for Minnesota”, and new website greensformn.org.
The purpose of Greens for Minnesota is to provide voters concerned with economic justice and ecological limits something that is currently lacking at the Capitol today: an opportunity to express their authentic preferences at the ballot box. We live in times of monumental inequality and challenges for people, and face decisions about our environment that require an eye fixed on the future and not the bottom line. Simply put – this moment demands that voters have the opportunity to vote their true preferences. Greens for Minnesota is ready to respond with answers that reflect the needs of the people, not Corporate America.
The inability of the parties currently in power to address the needs of Minnesotans couldn't be more apparent this year. We can break this stifling lock on power, but it will require changing the rules of the game and empowering Minnesotans. The Greens for Minnesota campaign is in response to the clear need for more voices in our elections, and will highlight the need for improvements in democracy including those embodied in the “We the People Act” (to rid politics of corporate money) and Ranked Choice Voting.
Greens for Minnesota is currently screening state and local candidates who are seeking Green Party endorsement in 2014. Announcements about candidates and offices sought will be made at a later date.
