Historic Overview

The Massachusetts Green party was founded in 1996. Based on the Ten Key Values, it's mission is to promote the Ten Key Values, encourage development of green locals, serve as a networking struture, and nominate green candidates for elected office. The Massachusetts Green Party ran its first candidate for US Senate in 1996, Charles Laws from Martha's Vineyard. They also worked on a write in campaign for Nader in 1996 and established an office in Lawrence, MA. In 1998 a green candidate Stephen Elliot received 12% of the vote for State Senate. In 1998 the MA Green party worked to expand democracy through its work on the campaign for clean elections in MA. This past year has been quite historic for the Massachusetts Green party, having established the first paid position and having gathered over 20,000 signatures (more than twice what was needed) to put Nader/LaDuke on the ballot. Having received the 3rd highest percent in the US for Nader/LaDuke votes is no small feat, and Massachusetts did it. Getting 6% of the vote, well over the 3% needed for ballot status; we achieved political party status! The Massachusetts Green Party is proud to be emerging from the 2000 campaign with 2 paid staff, a state-wide steering committee and three dozen local green groups.
