PA 2014
PA Green Party has a new look and has elected several more local candidates in 2013.

They may have a serious candidate for Governor in Paul Glover and will likely have man more candidates for state legislative offices, they have seriously revamped their website, started a campaign fund for 2014 (I recommend chipping in $1 or $2Smile ), and they have a very large social media presence.



Get involved with the new PA Green Party!

RE: PA 2014
So far, there are three, maybe four, candidates. In addition to Glover, Tom Prigg is running for US Congress in PA-12 (near Pittsburgh), and Jerry Kairnes is running in PA-10 (NE PA). There was also someone who expressed interest in running for state house in the 139th district (NE PA, the corner where PA, NJ, and NY meet) but he wasn't 100% sure if he was able to run.

Some links to Glover's website and the campaign prospectus he gave to the GPPA state committee are here:

Philly Weekly also interviewed Glover:

EDIT: Kairnes has a facebook page:

Great that the greens will have some other candidates. However, I think they need about 15 or so with the number of people registered in this state that are green. Look at the Maine Independent Green party, they have amassed many candidates for state house and state senate seats. Yet besides the governor race, one state house race, and a congressional race the Green Party seems to be ready to forfeit the rest?

Those are the only people who expressed interest in running this year in PA. The Green Party in Maine also has a much larger share of the electorate than in PA.

RE: PA 2014
Certainly, but you have to look and say there there are still considerably more state house and senate seats and way more greens in terms of the numbers. That should translate into more candidates in the end. The greens should run to try and take Philadelphia seats, there is a place they could do well.

Also, Paul Glover for Governor has his site up if anyone was wondering!
