Background

Note: CCC elections ran late this cycle. Due to the nature of this committeeís work around the election cycles and the fact that elections have never taken place as scheduled, the committee is considering updating rules to call for elections to start a little later This will provide time for the committee to wrap up itís current work and time for new members to be elected and oriented as the new election cycle begins.

COMMITTEE MISSION

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.

CCC COMMITTEE STRUCTURE

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.

Ö

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.Ē

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.

NOTA
None Of The Above

Keil Corkran
My name is Kiel Corkran from the Kansas Green Party and Iím running for a seat on the national green party candidate election committee! To help give you a better idea of who he is and why you should vote for him to be part of the ccc we will go over a quick bio. This bio will help give a idea of his electoral activities within his local state green party, activities as a individual candidate within his state party , and also his overall motivations for joining this committee. Kiel is a co-chair of the national green partyís outreach committee where he has helped to lead efforts to support effects to grow local parties as he believes that the key is creating a greater presence of the green party within the public mindset. An example would be Kielís efforts to have the outreach committee help the North Carlina Green party with their efforts to get Mathew Hoe elected to Congress. Another example of this his efforts to put together a PowerPoint that help to explain our to get a local party going for those who were interested. Kielís activities for the Kansas state committee include running for a statewide office, Insurance Commissioner, where due to the lack of ballad access for the green party in Kansas he raided the democratic ticket and was able to make all the way to general election. Currently, he is helping to run the campaign behind the state party local campaign for our candidate for the Wichita School Board with plans next year to run for the stateís education board. Lastly, Kielís overall motivations for joining the ccc is that he believes that given his experience as candidatae, outreach efforts here in Kansas and on the national level, and desire to see the green party platform succeed that his addition to the committee would be a benefit for future green party campaigns and candidates.
