Green Party of California

Application for Member, Delegation to Green Party of the United States
(job description)
received March 11th, 2009

Name  -  Bill Meyers
City - Point Arena
County  - Humboldt
Contact information - 707-882-1818;


I reside in Mendocino County, where I have been active in the local Green Party. This includes attempts to get Green Party members elected to office. I first registered Green in 2001.

I served on the Point Arena School Board from 2000 until 2008, including 2 years as board chairperson.

I have served as a delegate to the National Committee a couple of times already, so I am familiar with the responsiblities involved.

I have at times been active with the Green Party of California, for instance acting as a facilitator and serving on the Personnel Committee.

I am a professional writer; most of my income comes from freelance technical editorial work. My political works include A Brief History of the Democratic Party and Santa Clara Blues: Corporate Personhood versus Democracy.

I know that the Democratic and Republican Parties are war crimes organizations. I know both represent a ruling class in the United States that has almost no common interests with working people. To the extent we should work through the currently structured representative democracy, I believe the Green Party is the most viable alternative to the ruling class parties.

I don't think my vision is very different from most people who are active in the Green Party. I know being on the National Committee is not glamorous. It is mostly grunt work.

2009-2010 are years in which the American people are likely to see the true nature of the Democratic Party. I hope we can show them that the Green Party is a viable alternative for hope and change.
