The Green Party supports local, living economies across Pennsylvania. We call for more local buying initiatives and strategic linking of eco-business and economic development. We support a living wage for all Pennsylvanians, which would be significantly more than even the newly raised minimum wage of $6.25 per hour.
War in Iraq
The Green Party calls on Governor Rendell to bring home our National Guard troops immediately. We demand an end to the War in Iraq immediately. Bring our troops home! We hold the Democratic Party equally complicit in the death and destruction in Iraq, particularly because of their refusal to stop funding the war.
The Green Party believes in fair and equal ballot access for all parties and independent candidates. We support the Voter Choice Act, S252, which would level the playing field for minor party and independent candidates. Learn more by watching this short video.
