    The long-time dominance of the two establishment parties has left us facing an ecological crisis and an economic crisis. That certainly argues for shaking up the status quo! Our political system must be opened up to more voices. We need more choices on the ballot. The Democrats and Republicans could use some competition!

      More than superficial change is needed. We must protect the earth for future generations. Creative solutions are needed which will allow us to live well without destroying our environment or our social cohesion. The Green Party is working toward a fundamental transformation of our politics and our lifeways in order to foster a healthy, sustainable society in harmony with the environment.

      Our economic well-being shouldn’t be dependent upon federal or state bailouts! Rather than propping up the big corporations and banks, more of our tax dollars should go toward supporting our local economies. Development should focus on jobs that are based in the community and enterprises (public and private) that have a vested interest in the community. This is what the Green Party means when it says that it advocates “community-based economics.”
      The greatest obstacle to change in New Jersey is the fact that the government in Trenton responds to the needs of the big corporations rather than to the needs of the majority of citizens. Only by building grassroots democracy—based on a renewal of local empowerment—can we be sure that change will be real, substantial, and reflective of our self-governing values.

    Steven Welzer was a founding member of the Green Party of New Jersey. He currently serves on the Steering Committee of the national Green Party. Patricia Alessandrini has
    run for State Assembly, County Freeholder, and US Congress. Last year she received the highest vote total ever for a Green candidate running for US House of Representatives.

    Green politics focuses on ecology and community. The Republicans and Democrats focus on fundraising
    and business-as-usual. Send a message that you’d like to see the growth of a new political alternative.

  • Chris Christie, with his expensive TV ads, is trying to convince us that his disastrous term as Governor has been a big success for New Jersey. But he has failed to increase wages or reduce unemployment. He has vetoed the anti-fracking bill and the gay marriage bill. He has cut programs and funds for teachers and education. Only the rich have benefitted from his tenure.

    We need to help Steve Welzer get on the ballot to run against Christie in November. I would like to have a special dinner event to host Steve in Gloucester County but first we need to collect hundreds of signatures for his ballot petition. Below is a link for a copy of the petition. Please print it out and start collecting signatures from your family, friends and neighbors.

    We need a total of over 1,000 signatures in NJ, but in Gloucester we need to set a goal of only a few hundred. If you can only get 10 or 20 signatures, that will certainly help. We are conducting a signature drive event on Saturday, May 11th.

    Other Ballot Drives for Steve are being conducted throughout the state. Please contact us to announce one or join one in your area. Help get Steve on the ballot for Green Governor of New Jersey!
