PAUL, MINN. (June 16, 2011) - Fifty people turned out when the Green Party publicly announced GreenSaintPaul, a slate of candidates running for city government in support of a common platform that puts people first. The candidates are Johnny Howard (Ward 1), Jim Ivey (Ward 2) and Devin Miller (School Board). GreenSaintPaul is co-chaired by former legislator Andy Dawkins and neighborhood activist Roger Meyer. "More and more, I hear people say that politics doesn't work anymore. Today we announced a new kind of people-first politics in Saint Paul," said Dawkins, "Our candidates are running as a team based on a shared vision and a commitment to community, not because they have powerful connections. Our candidates are going to bring new energy, initiative, and a shared vision to the city council." Meyer emphasized the importance of last year's referendum that changed city elections, saying, "Ranked Choice Voting changes the landscape in Saint Paul. Every candidate for City Council will campaign to the general election, where a broader group will vote compared to the old city primaries. This year, every voter can vote for the candidate that best represents him or her, without fear about handing the election to their least favorite candidate, because they can also rank a second choice. We're putting forward a platform and candidates that will bring new people and ideas in to St. Paul politics. We're actively recruiting other candidates who share this passion and vision, so that people all over St. Paul can vote for real change." The GreenSaintPaul platform is: * Saint Paul deserves a strong, vibrant and resilient local economy that creates good jobs. * Saint Paul deserves a greener, healthier environment. * Saint Paul can reduce racial disparities and treat all of its residents with fairness, dignity and respect. * Saint Paul can tap into the wisdom and energy of its residents to increase local self determination. * Saint Paul can provide all of our children with a safe, healthy learning environment to achieve academic excellence and build community leadership.
