WHO: DR JILL STEIN, A GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE FOR U.S. PRESIDENT

WHEN: THIS THURSDAY, MARCH 1, 2012,  5PM-7PM

WHERE: FIRST CHURCH OF CHRIST, 190 COURT ST., MIDDLETOWN, CT

Green Party presidential candidate, physician, and environmental health advocate Dr. Jill Stein will be speaking in Middletown, CT, on March 1st 2012.  Dr. Stein advocates for the creation of a Green New Deal, (http://www.jillstein.org/green_new_deal) which aims to end unemployment, transition to a more sustainable energy infrastructure, initiate financial reform, and strengthen democracy by protecting voters’ rights and limiting the power of corporations.  If you’re interested in Dr. Stein’s campaign, curious about the Green Party, or frustrated by the politics of the two-party system, come to this event on March 1st.

Stein was a candidate for Governor of Massachusetts in the 2002 and the 2010 gubernatorial elections. Stein was nominated for Secretary of the Commonwealth on March 4, 2006, at the Green-Rainbow Party (MA) state-wide nominating convention. In a two-way race with three-term incumbent Democrat Bill Galvin, Stein received 353,551 votes or 18% of the total vote.  

Stein is a resident of Lexington, Massachusetts and a 1979 graduate of Harvard Medical School. She serves on the boards of Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility and MassVoters for Fair Elections, and has been active with the Massachusetts Coalition for Healthy Communities.

This event will be the kickoff meeting for the Green Party of CT’s 2012 Petition Campaign to secure a place on the CT ballot for the Green Party Presidential candidate.  The GPCT must collect 7500 valid signatures (12,500 + raw signatures) to qualify for a line on CT’s 2012 ballot for President, Vice President, and U.S. Senate.  Petitions and information about this petition campaign will be available at this historic meeting. So please come and join this important effort to give the citizens of CT more voices and more choices!

    Folks make this happen. Go to Jill’s Web page and donate $$. We need a progressive challenge to the Obama and Romney Show.

    I don’t know why the GP didn’t use the show me cannabis drive to work along with her campaign. It would’ve been the perfect vehicle to get signatures for the ballot on both accounts.

    I have heard the totals are not very good.

    We’ll be honoring special guests who have helped build our Party through the years, and we’ll also welcome conservative leaders from across New York and all over America who have advanced our values and stood up for our principles and our country.

    It just so happens that June 14 is also Flag Day.

    What a great time to advance the ideals of patriotism and active citizenship exemplified by the Conservative Party.

    Make sure to watch your mail and email for more details on our Conservative Party’s 50th Anniversary celebration.

    Sincerely, Michael R. Long, Chairman
