The Coordinated Campaign Committee (CCC) is a standing committee of the GPUS that cooperates with state and local chapters in the support of federal, state, and local Green Party electoral campaigns through a variety of different programs and support functions.


The Coordinated Campaign Committee shall consist of 10 voting members Drawn from the affiliated state parties and caucuses. The National Committee shall elect 5 members of the CCC and replacements for recently opened vacancies with an on line election to be held each year. Nominations will be called for by the Secretary of the GPUS each year two weeks after Election Day. A two week nominating period shall be opened, followed by one week of discussion and an on line STV vote using the GPUS voting page and following the procedures and protocols the GPUS uses to elect the Steering Committee. The 5 people elected each year via the regular election shall serve two year terms while those elected or selected to fill vacancies will serve out the term of the member they are replacing. In between annual December elections for the CCC the GPUS Steering Committee shall appoint Greens to fill vacancies.

Committee members elected or selected in 2006 prior to an on line Election authorized by the passage of this proposal shall be able to maintain their seats until the election held in 2007. The Committee will continue to recruit and have members selected by the GPUS SC prior to November 2006 and then hold an election based on this rule change beginning in November 2006 to fill the rest of the seats that have not yet been filled. The Committee shall in January 2007 hold a lottery to determine which of the newly elected committee members shall have their terms conclude in December 2007 and which 5 shall Serve until the election in 2008.

The committee shall always have an equal number of women to other members on its roster, except when it has an odd number of members. Then its makeup can be +1 for any gender. The exception to this rule is that no member of the committee shall be asked or forced to resign from the committee in order to re-establish the balance. The balance will be re-established by adding members to the committee. Each year, the election to fill open seats on the CCC shall be two elections, one to elect up to 5 women to the committee, one to elect up to 5 open seats for men and nonbinary individuals. The number elected in any given year shall be determined by the nature of the vacancies in that year with the goal of having at least 5 women on the committee.”

No State Green Party or GPUS Caucus may have more than one member serving on the CCC at any time. State Parties and Caucuses must formally, in writing, nominate one of their members to serve on the CCC. No State Party or Caucus can nominate more than one person in any given year, nor can they nominate if a member of their state party or caucus will continue to serve on the committee after the filling of whatever seats are being filled. Nominations from State Party or Caucus officers are to be sent to the Secretary of the GPUS during the post November Election Nominating Period and when a vacancy is being filled, and the Secretary shall publish them on the votes email list.

The Coordinated Campaign Committee may also work with a pool of CCC Associates; these include one liaison from each affiliated state party not already represented on the CCC as well as staff or other persons necessary to the productivity of the CCC who shall be chosen as deemed appropriate by the CCC. Associates may participate in CCC discussions and meetings as needed but are not regular voting members of the CCC.

The responsibilities of the co-chairs shall include keeping the committee on task, maintaining a current roster of committee members, conducting votes, and communicating with CC and SC members for the BRPP committee and its subcommittees. Co-chairs shall submit formal monthly reports to the CC list detailing committee activities. The committee may create working groups and subcommittees.

Candidate Information

Gloria Mattera, New York
Gloria is currently a co-chair of the Green Party of New York and recently served 2 terms as a co-chair of the Green Party of the United States. She has been an advisor to several Green Party presidential campaigns and a Deputy Campaign Manager to the 2016 Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka campaign.

Starting in 2001, Gloria has been a Green Party candidate in four elections. Her initial run for New York City Council in 2001 was as an independent socialist who sought and received the Green Party ballot line. Running on a slogan of “People’s Needs, Not Corporate Greed,” Gloria championed a platform that addressed the disparity between the 1% in the richest city in the world and the 99% of those trying to get by.

Receiving 10% of the vote as a first-time candidate against Bill de Blasio, who was elected to the office and later became Mayor of New York City. Gloria was also one of the first Green Party candidates to receive NYC public campaign matching funds. She ran against de Blasio a second time for that council seat in 2003, almost doubling her vote percentage, which pushed the Green Party into second place above the Republican candidate. Gloria won access to public campaign matching funds again, through her fundraising efforts.

Striving to increase the visibility of the Green Party in Brooklyn, Gloria ran for Borough President in 2005 on an anti-eminent-domain platform, focusing on the mega-development of a professional basketball arena and high-rise luxury housing in the Atlantic Yards. Scores of volunteers from community groups fighting development project made it possible for Gloria’s campaign to collect over 5,000 signatures for ballot access and raise $50,000 to meet the higher bracket of NYC public campaign matching funds. Gloria received 7% of the vote in a borough of 1.5 million voters.

In 2010 Gloria was tapped to be Howie Hawkins running mate in his first Green Party candidacy for Governor of New York regaining ballot status for the party. The Hawkins-Mattera ticket was the first time the Green New Deal was presented in a U.S. Green Party campaign as a signature platform that would address the growing climate crisis while restoring public services and creating much-needed sustainable jobs following the crisis.

"During my two terms as a national co-chair, I was liaison the the CCC and currently participate as an observer, occasionally assisting with candidate questionnaires and on election night. I have seen first-hand the important work this committee does and would like to be elected to serve on it"

Hillary Kane, Pennsylvania
Hillary Kane is a long-time member of the Coordinated Campaign Committee. She is the GPUS National Treasurer and a member of the Steering Committee since 2017. Hillary has served on several campaigns, including Cheri Honkala's races for Sheriff (2011) and State Representative (2017).

Nathalie Paravicini, Oregon
Personal background: Born in Switzerland, raised in Venezuela by a French mom. I worked professionally in the healthcare sector for ten years specifically with the Mexican and Latino community. This background has given me an intimate understanding of the dynamics of the Latino community. While in Texas, Houston (20+ years), I worked closely with the African American community to whom I’m indebted for teaching me about privilege.

Professional background: I have always worked for myself; my first entrepreneurial venture was at 20 years old. I currently practice as a PCP and Naturopathic Doctor, with a specialty in behavioral health disturbances. I address neuroimmune encephalitis or impaired function by evaluating for metabolic imbalances (including hormones and congenital disturbances like EDS), deficiencies, exposures (mold, metals), chronic infections and complex trauma/PTSD. I have experience working in interdisciplinary teams as well as participating in public health initiatives. for more info.

Community organizing background: I am known for being a very good organizer and for having high ethical standards and being fair. I was involved in helping bridge the gap between ASGP and GPUS around 1999; create various consensus positions ( and mediate a number of conflict situations. As the first Secretary of GPUS I helped bring order and functionality to the national listservers and the voting process still in use today.
Post WTO in 1999, I traveled Texas by bus; then became the lead organizer of the ballot access petition drive. We collected 76,000 validated signatures from registered voters who had not voted in the primaries, in 75 days (legal requirements) while helping organize eight vibrant locals; then ran for office and supported other races.
After a 10 year hiatus to take care of my family, I became involved again in Oregon in 2017. I found a party that was in disarray (no regular meetings, history of divisive disagreements). We now have a functional SCC and three active committees meeting regularly ( with established procedures for coordinated action and recruitment/integration of new volunteers.
I ran for Secretary of State ( as a newcomer in 2020, securing ballot access for another four years.

Why my interest in the CCC and BRPP?
When getting involved again at the national level, I found it difficult to plug into the work of GPUS committees; there seems to be a lack of coordination between committees and also between states. The organizing lists are not functional (IMO). Based on my experience, my objectives are to:
1) Review communication platforms and guidelines, consider migrating to something that better meets GP needs for both transparency and coordination/involvement (eg
2) Leverage the great work that has already been done by the CCC, particularly training webinars, campaign materials. I would like to help amplify media and promotion of these events/tools across states. Right now great work gets done but few people hear about it
3) Share and develop best practices and help implement those across states; have regional GP cooperation. It appears some states are well organized, others are struggling. We need to be prepared to work in tandem for 2024; without reinventing the wheel in every state.

Holly Hart, Iowa
Special interests are local elections and policy, and ballot access. I have served as a volunteer and treasurer for six campaigns (city, county and state levels). My work has involved leafleting, tabling, petitioning, envelope-stuffing, event planning, media (press releases and appearances on Public Access TV, radio), letter-writing, grabbing the mic. at public hearing sessions at city council meetings, and more.

Recent activities:

Developed and presented “General Media Overview for Candidates” and “Treasury 101” and webinars.
Implemented periodic outreach to help update and maintain system of state elections liaisons and ensure state parties know where they can report candidates and campaign news.
Tracking candidates and assisting with elections database.
Hope to continue that work and build a more active network (good for candidates and for national media, as we can promote them).

Coordinated ballot petitioning in Iowa for Greens in presidential races (2000 to present) and assisted with ballot paperwork nationwide for Cobb/LaMarche 2004; McKinney/Clemente 2008; Stein/Baraka 2016.
IAGP candidate for Lt Gov in 2002. Our slate was endorsed by the statewide Latino weekly "El Communicador."

Legislation: Sought and gained bi (sic)-partisan legislative support for an expanded ballot status option bill in 2001-2003.

Litigation: Served as a consultant and part of team comprised of Greens, Libertarians, Socialists and Reform, for successful litigation to include third party organizations on state voter registration form. Assisted with a successful lawsuit clarifying circumstances in which ballot petitioner may collect signatures in private venues.
Included as the sole Green Party member as a panelist on a program featuring women in electoral politics, presented by the University of Iowa Women's Resource and Action Center.
Member of Iowans for Voting Integrity and Better Ballot Iowa

Statement: A unique purpose of a political party (as opposed to an NGO or lobbying or advocacy organization) is to directly influence policy by gaining access to the means or ability to enact it through elected office. While we run candidates at all levels for various purposes, one of the most important things we can do is recruit candidates to run for and win elected office, where they can have a direct influence on policy that affects real people and helps implement Green policy. This is critical if the Green Party is to remain more than just an alternative/opposition fashion statement. Further, local politics are the focal point of real politics. Many important federal policies got their start at the local level: localities have been able to offer alternatives to federal attempts to curtail civil liberties, sustainability practices, human rights, justice, education and more.
Related to this is the aspect of ballot access. The Green Party fills a niche that no other progressive/"green" NGO can, that of an electoral organization, some of whose affiliates are official political parties in their respective states. In order to be effective and successful, we must run candidates, and they must be able to get on the ballot (duh!). Since I became involved with the Green Party in the late 1990's, I have been involved in ballot access policy and work of some kind: either petitioning for a ballot line, coordinating a ballot line petition drive, managing ballot filing paperwork, researching ballot status legislation and working in my own state for improved access and benefits for third parties. In the early 2000’a, I was part of a Green/Libertarian effort that successfully won an out-of-court settlement to gain party name designation for third parties on voter registration forms (a benefit in my state); and involved in a successful litigation effort between Wisconsin and Iowa Green Parties and the City of Davenport over the right to petition in public areas.
