They Say “Shutdown”; We Say “Long Live the Green New Deal”!
The Green Team 2013 Press Conference: Presenting a Fresh Alternative

What: Press conference introducing the Green Team 2013

Who: The Green Team 2013, a group of candidates currently running for office in New York City under the Green Party of New York State banner

When: Sunday, October 27th, 2013, 12:30 PM

Where: In front of City Hall, 260 Broadway, Manhattan

Summary: A historic occasion will occur in New York City this Sunday afternoon: a group of public servants who cannot be bought, and who have real solutions to offer the people of New York, will gather at City Hall to present their joint program.

The recent government shutdown in Washington did not surprise the Greens. Both sides are acting irresponsibly. The Greens instead offer a plan – a Green New Deal – to help working people, not the banks; the beleaguered soldier, not the Pentagon; the children of our future, not ExxonMobil.

The team’s three citywide candidates for office ‒ mayoral candidate Anthony Gronowicz, comptroller candidate Julia Willebrand and Public Advocate candidate James Lane ‒ along with several New York City Council candidates ‒ will present their ideas to the media and the public. For those bored with the hollow public spectacle of de Blasio vs. Lhota, the Greens offer something quite unusual: a dose of truth. Read the rest of this entry

Green Party candidates to speak out on National Green Day of Action on Climate Change


For Immediate Release: September 30, 2012

For More Info: Green Team 2012,, 347-948-4010


The Green Party is holding coordinated local climate actions and a national online town hall meeting on Sunday, September 30 as part of a Green Party National Day of Action on Climate Change. The Greens intend to call attention to the climate emergency and the exclusion of that topic – and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein – from the presidential debate to be held on Wednesday, October 3.

In New York City, Green Team 2012 will present a Green Party Candidates Speak Out on Sunday afternoon from 1 – 2pm at the Yippie Café and Museum, 9 Bleecker St. in Manhattan. Green candidates running for various offices in New York State will make presentations on different aspects of climate change, and offer Green solutions for solving this global crisis. Chris Williams, professor of physics and chemistry at Pace University, will be the featured speaker. He’s Vice President of the Union of Adjunct Faculty, and is also Chair of the science department at Packer Collegiate Institute. Williams is a long-time green activist and a member of the International Socialist Organization (ISO). He teaches courses in energy and the environment, physics, and chemistry, and is the author of “Ecology and Socialism: Solutions to Capitalist Ecological Crisis”, acclaimed as “a modern Marxist view of the eco-crisis”.

Scheduled to speak are Green Party candidates Colia Clark (U.S. Senate, NY), Joseph Diaferia (U. S Congress, CD16 Bronx-Westchester), Thomas Siracuse (NY State Senate, SD29 Manhattan-Bronx), Carl Lundgren (NY State Senate, SD34 Bronx-Westchester), Patrick Dwyer (NY State Assembly, AD46 Brooklyn) and Daniel Zuger (NY State Assembly, AD85 Bronx). John Reynolds, Acting Chair of Green Team 2012, will serve as MC and host for this event. The Green Party Candidates Speak Out can be viewed live on-line at
