GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA NEWS RELEASE

SAN FRANCISCO - The first, and only, live debate between candidates on the Green Party's California ballot for President of the United States - featuring a former Democratic Party member of Congress, consumer protection icon, professor and environmental engineer - is scheduled here January 13, said John Morton of the Green Presidential Debate Committee.

The debate will be held Sunday, January 13 at 2 p.m. at the Herbst Theater/Veterans Memorial Building, 401 Van Ness Avenue.

Six-time Democratic Rep. Cynthia McKinney, longtime consumer advocate Ralph Nader - who is still an undeclared candidate, university professor Jared Ball and environmental engineer Kent Mesplay will participate in 'Campaign 2008: A Presidential Debate that Matters.'

'Peace Mom' Cindy Sheehan - a former Democrat - will co-moderate the debate, along with co-hosts San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi, KPFA personality Aimee Allison and former President of SF Board of Supervisors Matt Gonzalez. Sheehan is running as an independent Congressional candidate against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco.
