Vote Green and Stop the Machine!

In the wee hours of Saturday morning, the US Senate voted to pass a tax overhaul bill that will hasten our economic spiral.  We know that our government has been sold to the highest bidder and that we need systemic changes.  But for the next few days we need to focus on one thing only: making sure this tax bill does NOT pass.

If you haven't had the chance to see any of the details, it will:

The Green Party of Monroe County is committed to continuing to give you better choices at the ballot, but right now everyone needs to come together to stop this egregious corporate giveaway.  This bill has passed the Senate, but not the House.  Below are key Republican representatives who need to hear from their constituents.  Monroe County's Congressperson will probably not be voting for this monstrosity, but those in other districts will.  Please look at the following members of Congress.  If you have friends and family in any of these districts, please contact them immediately to inspire them to call their representatives to tell them NOT to vote for the Tax and Jobs Act.  In fact, if you have friends in ANY districts represented in Congress by a Republican, encourage them to call.

PLEASE: If you live in one of the district below, CALL these key House members and leave messages on their voicemails as follows: “Hi, my name is _____ and I am calling to ask you to say NO to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It will take money away from people with disabilities and the support we need, drive up the deficit, and put more people in poverty.”

If you have family or friends or colleagues in those districts, please ask them to call.

Big thanks to Claire Page Reinhardt & Dave Sutliff-Atias for collecting these phone numbers.

We'll update you on new actions to take and the progress on stopping the bill on our social media and at our next Monthly Meeting on December 14th.




The Green Party of Monroe County's next Monthly Meeting is December 14th at 7pm at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, 285 Clarissa Street.
David Attridge behind a radio microphone.
 The guest speaker will be Dave Attridge, Executive Director of Recovery Now NY. Dave will be speaking about the local opioid epidemic and what our elected officials should be doing about it.

We'll also recap the 2017 election and start our preparation for 2018.  We hope to be as successful as the Waterford Greens were in Connecticut.

Here's your chance to influence the local Green Party, help campaigns and more. We can't wait to see you and please tell anyone you think would be interested in our guest speaker and the Green Party in general.

[The Flying Squirrel is accessible.]



Did you leave us in 2016 to support Bernie Sanders in the Primary?
