On the evening of February 25, the members of the Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP, www.gpop.org) met at the Philadelphia Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square to elect a new City Committee for 2015.

Glenn Davis of Haddington (Ward 4), the incumbent Chair of GPOP, was re-elected to that office. Two other incumbent officers were also re-elected: Hillary Kane of Cedar Park (Ward 46) as Treasurer; and Eric Hamell of Germantown (Ward 59) as Membership Secretary. The three City Committee Members at Large will be Chris Robinson from Germantown (Ward 59); Julian Robinson from Cedar Park (Ward 46); and Galen Tyler from Holmesburg (Ward 64). Chris Robinson and Galen Tyler were incumbents re-elected to the same office.

Green Chair Glenn Davis, explained, "I would like to see the GPOP City Committee continue as a team effort to build our party's membership. I also plan to bring new people into our active organization by mentoring new leadership. As our party grows, we will begin to appoint our own ward leaders and committee people."

Eric Hamell offered these thoughts on his re-election, "As GPOP Membership Secretary I intend to explore new and creative, evidence-based ways of involving current members and attracting new ones, drawing on the best evidence from the study of social influence and social networking."

"The Green Party turned an important corner last year," reasoned Chris Robinson. "We were back on the ballot with a candidate for PA State Representative, and this year we are looking forward to having two excellent candidates on the ballot for local office: Kristin Combs for City Council Member at Large, www.combs4citycouncil.com, and Glenn Davis for City Commissioner, https://m.facebook.com/GlennDavisforCityCommissionerPhiladelphiaPa.2015. Last year Green Party registration was up six percent, and we plan to do much better in 2015."

Julian Robinson tendered these plans, "In the up-coming year, I would like the Green Party to be together in one accord to help strengthen this party. I will work with our team to help embellish our party and help it grow under the mentorship of Glenn Davis."

The Green Party is an independent political party founded on the four pillars of nonviolence, grassroots democracy, ecological wisdom and social justice. For more information about the Green Party of Philadelphia, please telephone 215-243-7103 or email gpop@gpop.org.
