Michigan Greens Issue a Response to Snyder’s Last State of the State Speech

The Green Party of Michigan has issued a response to Rick Snyder’s final
“State of the State” speech Tuesday night.

The 15-minute video, a special episode of the recurring “In the Green”
program with host Clyde Shabazz, features GPMI Chair Sherry A. Wells and
Jennifer V. Kurland, a candidate for the Green nomination to succeed
Snyder as governor.

Wells introduces the founding principles of the Green Party, its Four
Pillars — Grassroots Democracy, Social Justice, Non-Violence, and
Ecological Wisdom — and explains how they are connected to major issues
Michigan faces.

Kurland discusses the Flint water crisis, on which she has already
shared the results of six months of research with every member of the
Legislature, as well as the impact of income inequality on Michigan
education and the need for a Green New Deal to give Michigan workers
jobs using the skills they have to help clean up the state’s excessive
share of the country’s most polluted neighborhoods.

The video is also available on the party’s Facebook page at

GPMI’s next statewide membership meeting will be Saturday, February 24
in the lower level training room at Community Rebuilders, 1120 Monroe
NW, Grand Rapids.
