GREEN PARTY OF PIMA COUNTY PLATFORM
- Grassroots Democracy
- Social Justice
- Ecological Sustainability
We are an eco-socialist political party and part of a world-wide movement for human needs before profits. We are independent of the two corporate capitalist parties and accept no contributions from corporations.
There is a glaring contradiction between our rich society’s potential to fulfill human needs and the cruel, dangerous reality we live under today.
For over 100 years, the corporate-controlled Democratic and Republican parties representing the super-rich have held political power focused on enriching themselves at the expense of the rest of us.
They have now brought the world to the precipice of environmental collapse, nuclear war or both.
Isn’t it time for a change?
We can create a just society with peace, freedom, democracy and prosperity for all in a sustainable environment.
Help us transform our economy from one that destroys our unique desert environment and pollutes our drinking water to one that protects people, the land and the water.

Bylaw Amendment Proposal
The following Bylaw amendment proposal will be on the agenda for the October 9th County Committee meeting:
The Green Party of Pima County bylaws shall be amended at IV.C.3.(f) to read:
(f) Confidence vote shall be taken at the first quarterly meeting in April. Confidence votes at the second and third quarterly meetings in July and October shall be taken at the discretion of the County Committee. A voice vote for each of the seven officers elected by the County Committee (the five Party Officers and the two Outreach Representatives) shall be taken. Should an officer receive a 35% vote of no-confidence as judged by the facilitator, the County Committee shall hold impeachment proceedings immediately pursuant to bylaws VII.C.1 - VII.C.3.
This amendment to the bylaws will require the County Committee to take Confidence votes at the first quarterly meeting in April only instead of requiring them at each quarterly meeting. Confidence votes may occur at 2nd and 3rd quarterly meetings if the County Committee decides to hold them."
