Portland Green Independents to Hold Caucus

Event scheduled for Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at Portland City Hall

Portland, Maine – Heading into Saturday’s caucus, Portland Green Independents have something to be excited about. According to new figures released by the Secretary of State’s Office, the number of registered Greens in Portland has increased. There are now over 2,600 registered party members in Maine’s largest city.

“The growing registration figures are really encouraging. People continue to look to the Greens Independent Party as a viable voice for sound public policy and decision making in local government,” said David Marshall, Chair of the Portland Green Independent Committee.

At the caucus, scheduled for Saturday at 11:00 a.m. at Portland City Hall, party members will discuss candidates, platform issues, voter registration, and fundraising.

“The caucus is a great opportunity for Green Independents to discuss platform ideas and learn about upcoming elections. We are seeking candidates for this year's elections including the State Legislature and City Council. Come share your ideas with us,” said Marshall.

The caucus is open to all registered Green Independents. Staff from the City Clerk’s Office will also be attending the event. Anyone who is not registered as a Green Independent may do so at the caucus and participate. For more information, email or call (207) 409-6617.
