INVITATION from the Maryland Greens

To the DC Statehood Green Party:

The Maryland Green Party is pleased to invite the DC Statehood Green Party to participate in our State Assembly to be held on May 12 and 13 in Towson, Maryland.  We would be especially pleased if a representative of the DC Statehood Green Party would join representatives from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, and the Deleware in speaking to the full assembly of Maryland Greens on Saturday, May 12. 

In addition, we are hosting the second regional Green Parties meeting, originally organized by the Maryland, DC, and Virginia Greens.  We would be pleased for you to sit in and participate.  We hope to use this assembly, the first as a recognized political party in Maryland, to focus on our campaigns and issues as we begin to define ourselves as a political force in state and regional politics.  Your presence will help us to define some of the regional issues of concern, and we hope that you can attend. 

The assembly will also provide some issue forums and workshops on topics such as universal single-payer healthcare, alternative community development, and campaign organization.  We are also pleased to announce that Matt Gonzalez, Green Party member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors will be attending the meeting and will be a keynote speaker at a fundraiser on Saturday evening.

Housing will be provided, if necessary.  For more information on the Maryland Green Party’s state assembly, please visit <>.  Please respond by e-mail, mail, or give me a call if you can attend. 

We would also very much appreciate it if you can pass along this invitation to your membership.  Please let us know if you will be attending, and if you will require housing and/or lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  The registration fee is $20 for general registration, $10 for students, seniors, and low income, and $5 for each lunch, although no one will be turned away for lack of funds. 

We will be happy to offer free registration to a representative or representatives who will speak to the full assembly.  Please let us know if you would like to appoint a representative so that we can put them on the agenda.

I look forward to hearing from you.
