Stein for President news: Counterpunch article, website redesign

Jill Stein’s Green Party campaign for president has been covered by Counterpunch in an article entitled “A Green New Deal?”:

The centerpiece of Stein’s plan is a commitment to end unemployment through direct federal action to create the jobs needed to end the “Bush/Obama recession,” she said in her Oct. 24 announcement release. Calling President Barack Obama’s jobs plan a “Wall Street-first approach” and “fundamentally misconceived,” she said it is too small and gives more money to the financial elite in hopes that they will decide to create jobs.

In other news, the Stein campaign has asked supporters to make suggestions for an upcoming redesign of JillStein.org:

We are beginning the process of redesigning our current website. We expect to continue to use NationBuilder as our underlying technology. Yet we also expect to have some flexibility in terms of what the website looks like, what tools it has, where various things are located on the website, etc..

We’d like to see your ideas. Pretend we’re starting with a blank slate, so criticisms of the current website won’t help. Please tell us what we should have on the new website: http://www.jillstein.org/website_suggestions

We don’t promise to use every good suggestion (or bad one) that we get, but we do promise to read your suggestions, and we appreciate your support.

Again, just go to http://www.jillstein.org/website_suggestions and login, and share your ideas about what our website should feature.

And while you are there, check out our new logo concepts at http://www.jillstein.org/logo_for_campaign . . . follow the directions there to give us feedback.

  1. I couldn’t find the area on the website where Jill wants suggestions, so I’ll just post it here:

    Activism. Focus on how supporters can help. Provide pdfs for materials (flyers), a phone banking system, and “how to” go door-to-door to canvas for Jill.

    Also, perhaps, create a forum where supporters can network.

    Aside from that, keep it nice and clean and simple. The basic format the site has now is fine, just showcase the activism stuff, keep a blog going on the front, and most all, like I said, keep it simple and easy to “access.”
