2015 Platform Hearing

Green Party of Onondaga County to Hold Platform Hearing

Syracuse, NY - The Green Party is inviting the public to a platform hearing on issues facing Syracuse and Onondaga County. People are invited to give testimony or just listen.  The event is scheduled for Sunday, April 26, from 1 to 3 p.m. or until all who want to speak have spoken. It will be at the Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Avenue, upstairs multi-use room.

“We want people to tell us what they think we must do to address the problems and use the opportunities we face. Any issue is up for discussion, from schools, jobs, crime, drug policy, and policing to infrastructure, sidewalk snow removal, housing, transportation, energy, and, of course, taxes,” said Barbara Humphrey, the Chair of the county Green Party.

The Green Party of Onondaga County will use the testimony to help finalize its 2015 policy planks, which will be considered at its May 17th convention to designate candidates and adopt a platform.  To schedule time for prepared testimony or to send in written testimony, the Greens ask people to contact them at syracusegreens@yahoo.com, 315-474-7055, or P.O. Box 562, Syracuse NY 13205.

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.
