The Green Party of the United States (GP-US) has a national office in Washington, DC which is home base for a handful of staffers. Emily Citkowski is a staff person who has been involved in various tasks such as communications, administrative work for the Steering Committee, etc. at various times over the years. It is unclear if the current finances of GP-US have had any influence on Ms. Citkowski’s departure.
From a GP-US Green line e-mail announcement:
Green Party Says Goodbye to Emily Citkowski
The Green Party of the United States’ Operations Director, Emily Citkowski, is leaving this month after nearly six years with the party. She started working for GPUS in November of 2003 and coordinated day-to-day operations at the national office through two Presidential campaigns, five national meetings, and several location changes.
After leaving a regional labor organization to direct operations for the Green Party, she is returning to work for a national labor advocacy group and then to law school shortly thereafter.
Emily remarked: “I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work for the Green Party as a staffer. During my time on staff I was constantly amazed, inspired, energized and sustained by dedication and creativity of our volunteers, candidates, officeholders and grassroots activists. Our party will not just survive but thrive on this kind of people-power and I look forward to being part of it as a volunteer. I’ll miss working with my colleagues at the national office, but have no doubt they’ll get along fine without me.”
In addition to her duties as Operations Director, Emily played a key role on the Merchandise and Outreach Committees. She will continue with her GPUS committee work, as well as her efforts with the DC Statehood Green Party…
