Pennsylvania Greens meet, host presidential candidate forum

pennPennsylvania’s Centre Daily News covers the first day of the Green Party of Pennsylvania annual meeting and nominating convention. Presidential candidate Jill Stein, 2012 vice presidential nominee Cheri Honkala, and Maryland U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers were among the speakers Saturday. The other four recognized presidential candidates — Darryl Cherney, Bill Kreml, Kent Mesplay, and Sedinam Kinamo Christin Moyowasifza-Curry — joined Stein via Skype for a candidate forum later in the day.

State party chair Jay Sweeney told the newspaper that there is “a national slow growth trend among the party. If nothing else, he hopes more people can get involved — if not to join the Green Party, then to become more educated.” He said, “A lot of people agree with the Green Party on the issues, but a lot of people are afraid to make the break. All we are asking is to give Greens a chance.”

  1. SKCM Curry did not actually speak to us. She did present anything at the convention or join us via Google hangout session. It would have been good to hear from her.
