GPoAC News and Updates
Tuesday, November 7, 2023
We want to congratulate two Green Party of Allegheny County (GPoAC) members on their re-elections: Michael Badges-Canning as mayor of Cherry Valley borough and Tara Yaney to the Edgewood borough council! We know they both will continue to do well by their constituents and be a fine example of Green Party values to all.
The Green Point -- GPoAC's Newsletter
The Green Point is the official periodical newsletter for the Green Party of Allegheny County, featuring news items and opinions from local members. Typically issues are published at the beginning of each month, but for important news and events additional special issues may be published. For faster news, please also follow us on Facebook and Twitter @AlleghenyGreens for more information, or sign up for our mailing list.
From February until December, the newsletter was sent as a mass email and we unfortunately do not have good copies of all of them.
