Our newly accredited state chapter of the Green Party will be holding a statewide meeting on Saturday, July 20. The place will be Susan Carsen Lambert’s farm in Anderson County. We will have more details down the road.
In the meantime, if you are interested in growing the Green Party in the state of Kentucky, mark your calendar and plan to attend. It will be a full-day meeting, with potluck lunch.
It’s official! The Kentucky Green Party is now an accredited state chapter of the Green Party USA. We are thrilled to have this official association with the Green Party USA. We are planning a statewide meeting this summer. Stay tuned for details on the date/time/place.
We made it!!!
Friday, September 7 at 3:30 PM, a half hour before the deadline, we submitted 8,370 signatures to the Ky Secretary of State’s office to get Jill Stein and Cheri Honkala on the presidential ballot in Kentucky. At 6:30 pm, Geoff Young got a call from Mary Sue Helm in that office (working overtime) to say that they had reached 5,000 in their counting and decided to list our candidates on their web site:
Jill, Cheri, and the Green Party will appear on every ballot in Kentucky unless one of the other parties files and wins a lawsuit to disqualify enough of our signatures to bring us below 5,000.
If you feel you’d like to help more, please consider making a contribution to the Stein-Honkala campaign and/or the Kentucky Green Party so we can accomplish more during the next few months leading up to the election.
Also, please form local Green Party groups in your city or county and start meeting and talking about how we can keep making a difference. June has some suggestions about how we could have an impact by pushing to have Cheri Honkala included in the Vice-Presidential debate scheduled in Danville, Kentucky on October 11 (at Centre College). http://www.centre.edu/centredebate2012/ There’s also Geoff Young’s campaign in Fayette County for the Ky House of Representatives 45th district. please contact Geoff if you’d like to help with that. see http://geoffyoung.org/
Welcome to the web site of the Kentucky Green Party.
Kentucky Green Party Established
The Ky Green Party came into existence during the Founding Statewide Convention held in Lawrenceburg, Kentucky, on Saturday, July 23, 2011, when the Green Party members present voted to approve the bylaws. To see the bylaws, please refer to the Documents section.
Section 1 of the bylaws describes the party’s ten Key Values. We have adopted the platform of the Green Party of the United States by reference. In the future, the Ky Green Party may adopt platform provisions that differ in some nonessential respects from the national party’s platform, but we will never abandon the 10 Key Values.
In brief, the Green Party is pro-environment, pro-working people, pro-diversity, and pro-peace.
