PA Greens Nominate Jill Stein for President of the U.S.


On March 10, Green Party delegates and friends from 12 Pennsylvania counties met virtually for the Green Party of PA (GPPA) State Committee meeting. The 30 delegates were in good cheer because they had just completed the first GPPA Presidential Primary. There were two winners. Jill Stein came in first place and earned 75% of the vote and was awarded ten delegates. Jasmine Sherman came in second place with 19% of the vote and earned three delegates. Jorge Zavala and write-in candidates did not earn any delegates.


Marci Henzi, a GPPA State Committee delegate from Allegheny County, was very pleased. “I am glad that Jill Stein is running again and that she has been nominated by GPPA for President. Jill has proven to be a strong leader--not only through her phenomenal campaign in 2016, but by her presence for the Green Party in the eight intervening years. Her strength and powerful rhetoric continues to inspire new and seasoned voters alike. Jill Stein is a courageous representative of what we value and what we aspire to.”

“It is marvelous that Green Party voters have chosen Jill Stein to be their candidate in PA for president of the U.S.,” said Chris Robinson a State Committee delegate from Philadelphia. “Jill Stein has always stood for people, planet and peace over profit. Now, voters who agree with her will have a choice on November 5.” 


"As a member of Poor People's Army working with the organized poor everyday on the streets in the greater Philly area, I'm thrilled that Jill Stein won the GPPA presidential primary,” said Matthew Pillischer (Montgomery). “Poor and working people don't have an option that will actually mean something in either corporate party. One party smiles with a peace sign while they stab you in the back, and the other party stabs you in the chest while making fun of you. Neither party works for us. We need to build independent people power from the bottom and look for meaningful ways like this to express that in the limited but important electoral arena."


GPPA Co-chair Jeremy Griffin (Delaware) said, “Glad that we were able run a successful and transparent primary. Shout out to OpaVote and U.S. Postal Service for being the reliable tools used for our Green Party Presidential Primary. Special shout out to our GreenWave Team. GreenWave Team members came together and were the architects of this primary plan. I'm also very glad to see more people vote Green this upcoming election. I'm excited to see more Greens organized this year, too."


The GPPA State Committee also elected by consensus: a candidate for for U.S. Senate and Richard Weiss Esq. (Allegheny) for PA Attorney General. Weiss was the Green Party candidate for PA Attorney General in 2020, earning 70,804
