From Joey Naham: I’m having a long beach green party meeting: Monday 4/6/15 @5:30 location: Gentle Brew. The Green Party candidate for Governor, Howie Hawkins, earned more than 160,000 votes in the last election cycle. There are now more than 1,500 registered green party members in Nassau County. The Green Party is now 4th on the ballot.
The Nassau County Green Party wants to organize. We are developing our Nassau County Green Party Platform. If you would like to meet fellow members and contribute to crafting our county platform please join the meet and greet of fellow Green Party neighbors!
The Platform is in development, but these are the ideas being discussed:
- Stream line solar roof permitting process between county, towns, and incorporated villages in Nassau County.
- Property transfer tax for homes sold in the county worth one million or more (county would get revenue)
- Oppose privatization of county owned infrastructure
- Support stock transfer tax as part of New York State Green Party platform
- Oppose alienation of county park land
- Ban plastic bags and Styrofoam
- Eliminate red light camerasThe upcoming meet and greet will be fun and informative. Hope to see you there.
