E-News 9.19.13 - Hawkins MoneyBloom, Bott House Parties, Candidates on Kilpatrick, Rovics in Concert





What's YOUR plan to help get Greens elected in 2013? Our campaign team is working hard behind the scenes and in the streets, and with only 6 weeks left till Election Day, why not make your own plan, too? Make a schedule to volunteer based upon your own calendar, and then stick to it! Can you volunteer to make calls or knock on doors, once a week? Twice a week? Contact the Syracuse Greens for help or questions on making 2013 a winning year. Remember, Howie Hawkins won 48% in 2011 and this year, we're closing that gap. And the city-wide campaigns of Kevin Bott for Mayor and Barb for School Board are expanding the reach of the Green Party and our practical solutions every day.  Lend a hand and be seen being Green.

Hawkins MoneyBloom
Howie Hawkins is running for Syracuse City Council in order to speak up for the policies needed to fully fund our schools and public services. He is a lifelong activist, always working hard, agitating and organizing for practical solutions.  To support him, we are organizing a MoneyBloom, a one day, online fundraising event. Pledge now to donate, and invite friends to donate, and then make your donation together with all the other pledgers on Friday September 27th!

Please pledge to donate whatever you can to support Howie Hawkins and a historic Green win in Syracuse!

Save-The-Date.  We'll be hosting indie folk singer/songwriter David Rovics in Syracuse on Thursday October 10th for a benefit concert at St Lucy's Parish on the Near West Side in Syracuse.  David's music concerns topical subjects such as anti-war, anti-globalization and social justice issues.  Visit David's website at http://davidrovics.com/ to learn more about him and his inspiring songs!!  Or visit his YouTube channel for a sampling as well - http://www.youtube.com/user/drovics.  RSVP at http://syracusegreens.nationbuilder.com/david_rovics_in_concert

Photo Album from Westcott Street Fair
What a spectacular turnout of supporters we had at the Westcott Street Cultural Fair last Sunday.  If the pictures in this photo album don't get you excited to come out and join us I don't know what will!

Become a Green Sustainer  We are grassroots and people-powered but our growing party does need financial resources to be effective. Please donate what you can and Become A Green Sustainer Today. We're the only ones we can count on to help fund our independent, non-corporate, party today

Great work, team! Onward for Howie, Barb, Kevin, and Syracuse!
As a political party we work to establish political action based on cooperation, rather than exploitation, on conservation rather than consumption, and on sustainability rather than short-term gain. We believe in an alternative, independent politics.
