  1. There is an even more detailed and impressive schedule at the state Green Party web page.

    Organizing regular state meetings myself…mighty impressive work. Many powerful speakers and moving themes.

    …In other Green Party news…

    Voice of America reporting the Green Party is ready to make major electoral breakthroughs…

    In Australia, where the Green Party has long had terrific Green Party Senators like Bob Brown.

    Wonderful, kind fellow..
