ELECT-ALUJAH! It’s Up to US, New York!
In a message from his campaign, the Rev. Billy Talen explains why “It’s up to US New York.”
After reading the text, watch the video. The personal statements of these people, who so clearly know Billy well, is very moving, and speaks to how the Green Party is being seem as a political party concerned about every day people.
Dear Wonderful People,
It’s happening now, isn’t it? Can’t you feel it? The heat coming off the pavement, people mingling, bumping into each other in those deliriously unexpected ways that IS New York City in the Springtime. It’s getting HOT out there, and thanks to your support our campaign is heating up too!
This Sunday come out to campaign HQ to watch the premier of our new “singing endorsement” video. Sunday May 3rd, come to 250 Lafayette at 5:00pm. If you can’t get to NYC, don’t worry, we’ll be posting it online by 9:00pm Sunday night.
This video is to be our calling card, our testament and testimony to the resilience and ingenuity of local economies, our shout out to the fabulous 500 neighborhoods!
We need your help to spread the message. $10 adds up and pays the rent on our headquarters. $100 will allow us to advertise the singing endorsement video online. $1000 will pay for a print run of our latest palm card.
The Wall Street Journal and Village Voice published great articles about our campaign. The new HQ is a buzzing little hive. We had people dancing in the street at our opening party, people! It’s about time for that kind of presence in public space, isn’t it? It’s about time for us to come together again, drop our guard, open ourselves to new possibilities.
–Rev. Billy Talen, Green Party Candidate for Mayor of New York City
