County Greens vote for officers

The Oneida County Green Party meets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Utica Public Library.

While the session is open to the public, only registered Greens of Oneida County will be allowed to vote for officers of the local chapter. There were active enrolled Green Party members in the county as of April 1, according to the state Board of Elections.

The Greens oppose hydrofracking and support local agriculture. Their agenda supports locally controlled, sustainable economic development, gender equality, human rights, universal health care, and limiting suburban sprawl.

Jill Stein, a physician from Massachusetts, is running for president on the Green Party line.
