Greetings, I've compiled some information on how we can win this campaign- how we can send Jello Biafra supporters to the Green Party Presidential Nominating Convention in Colorado. This is not campaign strategy or tactics, just an explaination of what each state goals must be. Please Correct me if you find any of this information to be in error. Most Green Parties select delegates to the Presidential Nominating Convention by a State Nominating Convention, they may also endorse a candidate as a state. In some states endorsements are done by primary, but selection of delegates is done by convention. In New York, endorsements and selection of candidates is done by primary.
When seeking to pack a Green Party convention with Jello Biafra supporters, make sure they are registered Green Party members, pay dues if required, and that you have about the same number of Jello supports as are expected to attend the convention. Make sure you have as many Jello supporters running as the # of delegates to be voted on. If 35 people normally attend your Green Party convention, expect 50 to show up for the nominating convention- bring at least 50 Jello Biafra supporters. If 25 people normally attend the conventions, bring 35. Yes, its that easy for Jello to win in most states. I have categorized the status of Green Parties in each state into 5 basic categories: ASGP* Affiliated State Green Parties With Ballot Access, ASGP* Affiliated State Green Parties Without Ballot Access, Unaffiliated or Applying State Green Parties, States with Local Green Organizations, and States without any Green Party contacts. All of the ASGP affiliated states will have or have had Nominating Conventions to choose their delegates to the Presidential Nominating Convention, except New York. New York will be chosen through a primary, I believe. States with Local Green Organizations and States without any Green Party contacts must be organized into State Green Parties before delegations will be chosen. That means that if you want Jello to win Idaho, you must first start the Green Party of Idaho (Actually, you would first start a local chapter, say a Boise Green Party, then help establish chapters around the rest of the state, then finally form a state party.) *Association of State Green Parties

"Greens from all around Kentucky will decide on Feb. 13 which of the three Green presidential candidates they will support at this year's Association of State Green Parties national convention. Many Greens from around the state will gather in Covington on that day to officially start the Green Party of Kentucky by adopting bylaws and a constitution, and electing state officers. Then, those who are present will vote for their candidate for president in the 2000 election. Once that is decided, Kentucky Greens will begin the process of collecting the needed signatures to put that person's name on the Kentucky ballot next November. Since not every Kentucky Green can attend the Feb. 13 meeting, some will be allowed to place their votes through postal mail. However, voting is only open to Green Party members. With your vote, you must cut and paste the following, then answer each of the questions: Your name: Your full address: Your phone number: Do you agree with all 10 Key Values of the Green Party? Have you registered/re-registered as a member of the Green Party? Your answer to both questions must be yes for your ballot to count. And we will be verifying the responses mailed to us. Then, you can vote for one of the three candidates and mail your ballot to: see above. The three candidates are: Stephen Gaskin, Joel Kovel, and Ralph Nader. If you are a Jello supporter in Kentucky, you may be our only hope to win Kentucky. Please vote and have your friends vote for Jello Biafra on the 13th.
