Constitutional Amendment 3

Voters in New Mexico are asked to consider three different constitutional amendments.  The GPNM Green Council had consensus on a soft NO on CA-3.  The overriding concern is that a judge appointed to fill a vacancy in an elected position could continue to serve beyond the next general election.

Greens Getting Media and Creating Their Own

The smaller party and independent candidates often are intentionally denied coverage and opportunities to alert voters to other options and introduce ideas. This frequently occurs when commercial media produce debates. Scattered across the country, however, are opportunities for Green Party candidates–next week, the Green candidate is included in a televised congressional debate in Connecticut.

Sometimes, we create our own media and share it as widely as we can. One of the headline candidates for Greens in 2022 is Matt Hoh, running for U. S. Senate from North Carolina. He has a series of video chats with notable figures, e. g., Margaret Kimberley and Chris Hedges, including tonight’s chat with Jill Stein. Find more videos of Matt making waves on his youtube channel.
