Ever thought of running for public office on the Green Party ticket?

Ever thought of running for public office on the Green Party ticket?

The Green Party of Arkansas will be using a convention rather than a Primary Election to select the Green candidates for the Nov. 2012 General Election.

 

The Green Party of Arkansas 2012 Convention will be held  Sunday, May 6 from 2pm until completed (location to be announced).

 

Anyone interested in being a candidate must attend.  All Green Party members/supporters are encouraged to participate in the convention. Endorsements in non-partisan elections may be done at the convention.

 

The Ark. Secretary of State has a free handbook with the election rules and various forms you can download:

Applications are once again being accepted for this year’s September Fund scholarships.

Any first-year college-bound student who is the son or daughter of an Arkansas Firefighter, Law Enforcement Officer or Emergency Medical Technician and who lives in Arkansas may apply.

Since the fund’s inception in 2003, it has raised and awarded over $65,000 in scholarships.  Last year eighteen Arkansas high school seniors were each awarded $1,000 for their first year of college. The fund has even more money to award this year.

Radio personalities and hosts of “The Corey and Jay Show”;  Corey Deitz and Jay Hamilton from Clear Channel’s 100.3 The Edge (KDJE/Little Rock), created the September Fund on the second anniversary of September 11, 2001 as a living memorial to the brave first-responder civil servants who died and sacrificed on that day. The fund is registered with the state of Arkansas and has been granted tax-free status by the IRS.
