Welcome to the August 2015 issue of the Sunflower Seed! We're sending this out a few days early so that we can report on the Green Party of the United States Convention in St. Louis, beginning Wednesday, July 23.
The other big event coming in August is the start of the Minnesota State Fair, where we will once again have a presence in the Grandstand, 2nd floor. If you have never visited our booth, make sure and stop by this year. Better yet, volunteer for a shift!
You can do so by e-mailing Andy Hamerlinck at email@example.com. The first two people to sign up for each 4-hour shift will get a free ticket to get in!Read more
Duluth played host to a great Green Party of Minnesota Membership Meeting last month. This issue of the Sunflower Seed recaps that meeting, as well as the successful petitioning Greens engaged in on behalf of the Duluth Better Ballot Campaign. Green volunteers teamed with local activists to help put the campaign over the top on the number of signatures it needed to put Ranked Choice Voting on the ballot in Duluth this fall!

Donate by June 30th, and you will receive a receipt to submit to the State of Minnesota for the Political Contribution Refund Program.
