GLENS FALLS — The national Green Party’s presumptive U.S. Presidential candidate Jill Stein slammed both the Republican and Democratic parties and their candidates during an appearance June 9 at two fundraisers held in Glens Falls on her behalf.
The rallies, held at Rock Hill Cafe and the Gold Shade Restaurant, were well attended.
In detailing her platform, Stein called for a substantial boost to the minimum wage, establishing a government-run health care system to cover all citizens, eliminating most all use of fossil fuels in the U.S. by 2030, and reducing U.S. military involvement around the world.
She urged attendees — most of them in support of her party’s objectives, to not listen to warnings that a vote for her might help elect Donald Trump.
“This is a transformational moment when we desperately need change,” she said. “We’re at the breaking point right now, and it’s up to us to bring about the promise of democracy.”
