Momentum is building for the 2008 Presidential Elections in the Green Party of the United States, looking towards the Annual National Meeting next July in Chicago. Candidates need support from Greens to be nominated. Below are the calls for support. I have signed on to both in support of all candidates seeking the GPUS nomination for candidate for President of the United States in 2008:
Please forward widely to Greens and Green lists.
I am writing to ask for your support for attaining “official” recognition for the candidates listed below.
In order to be acknowledged as a candidate by the National Committee candidates must demonstrate proof of support form 100 greens in at least 5 states. Supporters may sign a letter of support for more than one candidate so we are requesting your support to have all of the following candidates acknowledged as “official” green party candidates.
By signing this letter you are not indicating that you will vote for these candidates.
This list below includes all the candidates who have given me their permission to put their names on this message.
I have included Kat Swift and Jesse Johnson and am waiting to hear back from them, if they do not wish to be included I will remove their names prior to submitting this letter to the PSCS.
Please add your name and contact info to the list of supporters and return to:
rhannon at toast.net
I will then compile all the names together and forward this message to the Presidential Campaign Support Committee.
Thank you for you assistance in showing our support for the dedicated people who have stepped forward to represent us as our presidential candidates. This is due by Dec. 1 so please reply promptly.
Cynthia McKinney’s request for support is also forwarded at the end of this message.

A Request from the Cynthia McKinneyPresidential Campaign
As you may already be aware, the National Committee of the Green Party of the United adopted a “Policy for Recognition of Declared Candidates for the Green Party Nomination for President”. This Policy now governs which candidates seeking the Party’s nomination may access Party resources. It is anticipated that some state Parties may use this recognition as a criteria for access to the state nominating ballots, as well.
We face a December 1st deadline for complying with the standards for such recognition, which include a provision that we receive verifiable support from 100 Green Party members, including members from at least 5 state parties, no later than December 1, 2007;
To facilitate the documentation of our compliance with this provision, last night we posted to Ms. McKinney’s campaign website a form designed to accept pledges of such support.
You can find that form
I am writing to ask you to do the following:
(1) go online and complete that form, pledging your support for national Party recognition of this campaign;
(2) consider making a financial contribution towards our Federal Matching Funds eligibility campaign while you are on our website;
(3) help this request to go viral by circulating it to Greens you know and Green Party lists you are subscribed to.
At this point we have about sixty hours left to meet this deadline. With your help we can do so.

Power to the People Committee,
Cynthia McKinney for President
