Get Ready for a Green 2023!
Happy Holidays! This past year, 2022, was a good one for the Wood County Green Party. We recruited new members, had a strong presence on important issues in state and local government, organized pro-choice rallies, and were highly visible in the community with our fair booth and Voters' Guide. Next year is shaping up to be even better. We still intend to run a candidate for mayor, and with the help of our new members have an even greater presence in the community. Get ready, the Green Future is on the way! Find out more about how you can help us in our latest blog post.
Wood County Ohio Green Party
Welcome to our webpage! The Green Party is the only Party dedicated to Ecological Wisdom, Non-Violence, Grassroots Democracy, and Social Justice! Help us as we work towards a Green future!
Why a Green Party?
It's clear neither Republicans nor Democrats are making the changes we all need to survive. We need Greens in office in Wood County if we hope to tackle problems like global warming, income inequality, and growing violence in our society.
Save Rooftop Solar!
In 2020, BG's Municipal Utility Board imposed a penalty on rooftop solar panels, cut the reimbursement rate for solar in half, and established other policies designed to block rooftop solar. This is the opposite of what is needed right now. We need to elect a Mayor in 2023 who will appoint a Board that will encourage solar and wind and get us out of our 50 year contract with the Prairie State Coal Plant in Illinois!
Enough excuses! In poll after poll, a vast majority of BG residents say that they want bike lanes. The City Council has been talking about bike lanes for over a decade. It's time to elect Greens who will actually make it happen. One thing most BG residents agree on is that the current system of "Sharrows" is a failure.
Come help us build the Green Future in Wood County! It's going to take hard work and a lot of people working together to create a real alternative to the two ordinary parties. We had over 20 volunteers for our booth at the Wood County Fair (Aug 1-8). We're also going to need canvassers to go door-to-door, hosts for candidate events, and more!
Will you be BG's next Mayor?
We're currently searching for a Mayoral Candidate for the 2023 election. We need someone who understands the need for real change and is willing to work hard to make it happen. Contact us if you're interested in running.
