County Green Party Business Meeting
Uptown Bill's Small Mall
I. The Johnson County Green Party
received a nice thank you note from the Dorr-Harthan family for the contribution
made to the American Diabetes Association in honor of Tim
Tim was the Iowa Green Party candidate for US Senate in 2002, and made several visits to Iowa City. Tim had a true ability to connect with students, members of organized labor, and everyday citizens. He served as one of the Iowa Green Party's delegates to the national meeting in Milwaukee and participated in a meeting of elected Green officeholders there, with positive response.
IV. Ongoing business: We will continue to try to monitor school board issues and inquire about the Van Allen School wind turbine, which is supposed to be there and isn't. We talked of getting involved in upcoming city council elections, and expressed continued interest in sponsoring a city council candidates' forum, focusing on green issues, sometime this fall. We decided to ask Kelley Putman to speak about the issue at an upcoming meeting.
V. Campus Greens members discussed having a Campus Greens' table at start of fall semester activity day, and more ideas for Campus Greens.
NEXT MEETING: Tuesday, July 5th,
