Sussman plans Green Party meeting

Civil rights attorney Michael Sussman, a longtime Democratic activist who has switched to the Green Party and is running for attorney general as a Green Party candidate, has scheduled a meeting in the Town of Wallkill on Tuesday to discuss organizing an Orange County chapter of the Green Party.

The gathering is at 7:15 p.m. on Aug. 7 at Wallkill Town Hall, 99 Tower Drive, Building A.

“We need a party based upon principle, empowering workers, creating a public bank, fighting corruption through real campaign finance reform, enforcing our laws which are intended to protect public health and safety,” Sussman said in a statement. “And, we need to organize at a local level and run candidates, something the Democratic Party has sporadically done even in a County in which their registrants outnumber Republicans.”
