The Green Party of NY State will hold its statewide nominating convention on Saturday, May 15th from 11AM to 6PM at the Woman's Club of Albany, 725 Madison Ave, Albany, NY.*
Candidates will seeking to be the Green Party nominees for Governor, Lt. Governor, two U.S. Senate seats, Comptroller, and Attorney General. (Candidates page.)
The convention will be streamed live on this web site beginning around 11AM Saturday morning.
The only way that the Green Party can regain ballot status in NY is to get 50,000 votes for their Governor candidate in 2010. This opportunity comes only once every four years, and it only applies to the Governor's race. Gaining ballot status will enable the Green Party to run more peace candidates, more single-payer candidates, more anti-fracking candidates, and more sustainable energy candidates. The last time that the Green Party of New York State had ballot status it set the record for running the most Green candidates of any state.
There is an after the convention social gathering planned, details to be announced at the convention.
