      Arizona needs help with Ballot Access

      Arizona is working toward ballot status and has until March 6th to
      turn in 20,449 good signatures. Petition gatherers have already
      collected approximately 10,000 and need at least 16-18,000 more to
      provide a cushion against contested signatures. Arizona has begun
      using professional signature gatherers and needs help with funding to
      pay these professionals. National Green Party has supported this
      process with donations requiring Arizona to match the funds. You can
      donate to the Arizona Green Party by sending a check to: P.O. Box
      60173, Phoenix, AZ 85082-0173.

      Richard Scott, one of the Coordinators of the Arizona drive says, "We
      can make this goal but it will take cooperation and help from Greens
      around the country to help raise the funds we need to get the job
      done. We have some petition gatherers from out of state coming to
      help but that takes time and coordination - guest gatherers must have
      a local with them when they petition. Donations will help us more
      easily attain our goal. I project that we can get this job completed
      for under $15,000 and we have approximately half that now - so please
      help - send us a check now - we can do this."

      Ballot drives are also underway in Utah - Feb 15 - 2000 signatures,
      Hawai'i - Apr 3 - 663 signatures, North Carolina - May 16 - 69,734
      signatures (in court - we're hoping for a favorable ruling this week
      and Texas - May 27 - 43,991 signatures. Green Line will be covering
      these and all ballot access efforts as they develop. To find out how

      Green Debate a Great Success!

      On January 13th Green Party Presidential hopefuls Jared Ball, Jesse
      Johnson, Kent Mesplay, Cynthia McKinney, Ralph Nader (undeclared
      candidate) and Kat Swift took to the stage in a packed auditorium in
      San Francisco for the only Presidential Debate that Mattered.

      According to the Alameda Greens website: "It was a brilliant event!
      800 attendees, nearly a full house, in one of the nicest venues in
      San Francisco, the historic Herbst. All the candidates appeared at
      their best, and were exceptional on stage. All great spokespersons,
      and fine examples of the Green movement. Bay-Area Green Michael-David
      Sasson said: "One of the people who went [to the Debate] and reported
      back to me, vowed to change her registration back to Green, and to
      urge wayward Greens to come back and recruit others to the GP. She
      and her friends are all people of color... which I think is

      Candidates McKinney, Swift, Mesplay Johnson and Ball debated a wide
      range of subjects, including tax policy, immigration, climate change,
      and the war in Iraq. Ralph Nader spoke after the debate, focusing on
      the corrosive role of corporate power in politics.

      Peace Activist Cindy Sheehan and former Green Party candidate for
      Oakland City Council and KPFA anchor Aimee Allison moderated the

      Pacifica Radio affiliate KPFA rebroadcast the debate and hosted a
      call in show moderated by Allison, political analyst Larry Bensky,
      and former San Francisco Board of Supervisors Chair Matt Gonzalez.

      Many thanks to The Green Party of Alameda County, the San Francisco
      Green Party and the National Delegates Committee of the Green Party
      of California for organizing such a superb event!
