  1. About 60 people at the Historic Y courtyard to heard Dr. Stein this evening, with welcome by Arizona Green Party Vice Chair Angel Torres, and Pima County Green Chair Mike Cease. Dr. Stein spoke about being the 2012 Presidential nominee for the Green Party and the importance of immigrant rights, gun violence prevention, living wage here in Arizona. She said the Green Party has been “ahead of the curve” with green economy issues, and that the Bernie Sanders people were going to need a Plan B when he loses his bid. She wants an America for works for all of us, that a “wholistic solution” is needed in this current crisis of democracy, with too much corporate power. Also attending tonight were former Green Party candidates Mary Decamp, Beryl Baker, Kent Solberg, Dave Croteau and current candidates Josh Riley (for D 4 Supervisor) and Mike Cease (Pima County Recorder).

  2. About 25 people at the Main library today to hear Dr. Mesplay speak about the alternative Green Party, climate justice, how to learn to live sustainably, why voters are apathetic & turned off to politics, the “Green New Deal” to fund federal jobs by cutting the U.S. Military budget, the need to “transform the military to peace time activities”, food security (local water supply & growing own food), decentralizing government/relocalizing it; how Green solutions threaten the status quo of capitalism, raising the safety net to help homeless, unemployable, importance of public education, less college debt for students. You can donate to his campaign at http://www.mesplay.org and he is one of 5 Green Party candidates for President; only two got on the Arizona ballot, him and Dr. Stein, who rain in 2012 as well. Former Green party candidates Mary Decamp and Beryl Baker in attendance today.
