Taking on the 2 party system!

The Pacific Green Party held its first nominating convention Sunday, May 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We allocated our 11 delegates to the presidential nominating convention (PNC) on a proportional basis. We invited all 5 candidates and put them on our ballot. 5 delegates went to Jill Stein, 4 delegates to Daví, and 2 to Jasmine Sherman. Results were published before adjournment.

We nominated three other candidates: Joe Meyer for US House District 3, Mike Beilstein for Oregon House District 16, and Dan Pulju for Oregon Treasurer.

Party business segment

After the nominations were done, the convention addressed the controversial February convention. Some officers had altered that convention’s voting results by disqualifying more than half the ballots. Testimony was heard from several sources and discussed. A motion was made to revoke Seth Woolley’s supporting membership for his role in altering the result. It passed on an 18-3 vote. A motion was made to revoke Nathalie Paravicini’s supporting membership for her role, and remove her from the SCC. It passed on a 17-3 vote.

Our bylaws provide that a convention schedules the next 2 conventions. Our next convention is August 11, 2024. Further nominations can be made there. Next we will have a winter convention in January, with elections for new SCC members.

Who voted

All voters registered PGP with the Secretary of State as of April 30, 2024 are eligible to vote on nominations. Nominations and endorsements are eligible for absentee voting if the convention so decides. This convention did. It also reinstated our rules of order, with meeting decisions made by a majority of supporting members present. By definition, a supporting member has met one of the three criteria listed in Bylaws Article III. These include modest donations or volunteer time, or at least 2 years registered PGP.

All PGP members attending qualified as supporting members. We invited all PGP members we could contact within our budget, including our email list of more than 400. Join that list on the form below, or while signing up for our forum!

Call for Delegates

The GPUS presidential nomination convention will be held online from August 15 to 18. It will formally nominate the presidential candidate. It will also consider amendments to the GPUS platform.

This is a largely ceremonial process. Our delegation will choose a “reporter” who will announce our votes during a roll call. Any PGP member willing to pledge a first-round vote is eligible.

In addition to our 11 delegates, we can also have 11 alternates. Historically, we have had no issues appointing our delegation among those willing to volunteer. If you would like to volunteer, fill out this form:

Thank you to all participants and candidates!
