Although the corporate presidential primaries have wrapped up, the Green Party still has a contested primary, and CA Green Party members' votes this June could determine our presidential ticket.
Several leading contenders have made the news recently. Jill Stein was recently interviewed by Grist.org, where she discusses the last time she beat Mitt Romney in a debate. Roseanne Barr was recently endorsed by 2008 Green Party presidential nominee Cynthia McKinney and by the Green Party's Black Caucus.
We are organizing a presidential candidate forum during the upcoming state Green Party plenary in SF. It will tentatively be held on the evening of May 12, and Jill Stein, Roseanne Barr and Kent Mesplay are all confirmed to attend.
Please join fellow SF Greens in supporting the signature drive to get a truly grassroots-driven initiative on the state ballot to label genetically engineered foods (GMOs).
This year's Voter Guide features full endorsement statements on each issue as well as a number of articles written by Green Party members about various topics.

Last week, Green Party mayoral candidate Terry Joan Baum turned in 1,280 valid signatures from people who want to see her on the ballot, 6th best among all 35 candidates currently in the running. She beat out several more well-known figures, including Phil Ting, Tony Hall, Joanna Rees, and Michaela Alioto-Pier!
Terry's campaign needs to raise money to pay the remainder of her filing fee, so please visit her web page and donate!
This week, the Baum campaign opened a campaign office at 2940 16th St. Suite 209. She has also been invited to participate in two more mayoral debates: Thurs, Aug 18, from 6-8 pm at the West Bay Conference Center in the Fillmore District, and Thurs, Sept. 22, from 7-9 pm at UCSF Cole Hall, 513 Parnassus Ave in the Inner Sunset.
Green Party mayoral candidate Terry Joan Baum was profiled in the Bay Area Reporter this week. She has also been invited to a major debate, scheduled on August 30 and sponsored by the Potrero Boosters Neighborhood Association.
This week, the Baum campaign launched her new website. She has also hired a campaign manager, Tom Goldkuhle. The campaign is planning a major volunteer mobilization this Saturday in Noe Valley and Upper Market.
