Green Party Director McMillan Stepping Down

Posted at Green Party Watch by Ronald Hardy:

Brent McMillan, Executive Director of the Green Party of the United States, has announced that he will be stepping down from his position after this year. McMillan has been in the role of first Political Director then Executive Director of GPUS since 2004. “I have come to believe that it is time for me to move on,” said McMillan in a message forwarded to the Green Party National Committee.

McMillan, 52, left the Republican party and joined the Delaware County (Indiana) Greens in 1991 and was Secretary for the first state wide meeting of Indiana Greens in 1992. In 1996 he helped start the Green Party of Seattle, and in 2000 he co-founded the Green Party of Washington State. He was the first co-chair of the GP of Washington State, he was a Delegate to the National Committee, a candidate for local office, a Treasurer of a local chapter, and an active Green Party organizer in Washington state politics.

McMillan has served as the Political Director (later Executive Director) of GPUS since 2004, working out of the office in Washington DC where he has worked to maintain stability and organization through years of internal political conflicts, small and large, within the Green Party’s Steering Committee and National Committee.

McMillan has stated that he intends to leave DC and return to his farm in Indiana, but he also hinted that he is far from finished with politics.

On a personal note, I have found Brent McMillan to be professional, knowledgeable, organized, and a savvy political organizer. His presence will be missed.

    Dreyfuss has organized and promoted campaigns to inform and instruct audiences in what he considers potential erosion of individual rights, a personal initiative he began in 2006, responding to what he believes were violations of individual rights under the presidential administration of George W. Bush.[15]

    On February 16, 2006, Dreyfuss spoke at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C. in hopes of prompting a national discussion on impeachment charges against U.S. President George W. Bush.[16]

    On November 17, 2006, Dreyfuss appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher as a panel member to discuss teaching civics in schools.[17]

    Dreyfuss currently serves on the Board of Trustees of the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.[18]

    In 2007, Dreyfuss appeared in the youth voting documentary film 18 in ’08.[19] Dreyfuss [and Don Lake] has / have publicly endorsed Jonathan Tasini’s campaign for Charles Rangel’s * congressional seat in the 15th district of New York in 2010 [and 2008].

    He was the lead plaintiff in [Johnathan] Tasini vs. The New York Times, the landmark electronic rights case that took on Big Media’s assault on the rights of thousands of freelance authors in the electronic age.

    In a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in June 2001 that Big Media had illegally used the works of writers without their permission.

    That precedent lead to a series of class action lawsuits (in which Jonathan served as a principle strategist and negotiator) which lead to a mass settlement for authors in 2005 and the creation of an $18 million fund to compensate writers.
