Green Party of Pennsylvania submits 20,000 signatures for ballot access


From the Green Party’s website, August 2nd, 2016:

Today, the Green Party of Pennsylvania filed over 20,000 signatures with the Pa Department of State to place presumptive Green Party presidential nominee, Dr. Jill Stein, on the Pennsylvania ballot. The Green Party of the United States holds it’s convention this weekend in Houston.

Three State Representative candidates also filed nominating petitions in including:

Michael Bagdes-Canning, in the 64th District
Gabe Lytle, in the 60th District and
John J. Sweeney in the 117th District.

“We are very pleased to have filed the paperwork to qualify the Green Party for the Pennsylvania ballot. During the final weeks of our drive we have had an influx of new volunteers who are really motivated and refuse to abandon the mission of a people’s politics. We knew we needed an amount well over the minimum to protect our candidates in case of a challenge, which is a common bullying tactic of the old parties. Now that the Clintons and the Democrats see that they can’t tame Bernie’s supporters, the next tactic will be to limit the choices before voters. The themes of peace, justice and environment that Jill Stein and the Greens bring to the debate seems to really bother Democrats, but the voters connect with such messages. We Greens are very proud of our candidate and we are excited about sharing our policy ideas with the people of Pennsylvania,” said Carl Romanelli, Ballot Access Coordinator for Jill 2016 (PA).

“We are excited to move on to the next phase of the campaign — actually getting the message out to voters, said Hillary Kane, Green Party of Pa Secretary.

The Green Party of Pennsylvania is an independent political party that stands in opposition to the two corporate parties. The Green Party of Pennsylvania stands for grassroots democracy, social justice, non violence and ecology.
