Hello Powerful People:
Welcome to the 12th issue of the
Power to the People Committee,
Cynthia McKinney for President Weekly Update.
— McKinney – Clemente Nominated by Green Party —
Cynthia McKinney won the Green Party’s Presidential Nomination at its Chicago Convention, taking 313 of 532 first round ballots in an eight way contested race to lead the 2008 Party’s Peace slate.
Once securing the nomination, she asked the Convention to also nominate as her running mate, Rosa Clemente, Bronx born activist, journalist, scholar and organizer who helped to found the HipHop Political Convention. Clemente said, “I chose to do this, not for me, but for my generation, my community and my daughter. I don’t see the Green Party as an alternative. I see it as imperative.”
