Monthly meetings:

The Southwest Ohio Green PAC only funds the web page and does not meet.  
Contributions to the “Southwest Ohio Green PAC” are just used to pay for the yearly web hosting charge for this web page. When the Hamilton County Green Party was formed it was decided to keep our original web page – www.swohgp.org as well as the PAC and checking account. In contrast, the “Hamilton County Green Party” does meet on a regular basis.

The Hamilton County Green Party usually has its regular meetings from 6:00 to 7:30 PM on the 3rd Thursday of the month at The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County – Clifton Branch (at the corner of Brookline and Ludlow Avenues) and has been doing so since 2017. Although we will plan to continue this practice into the future, we do make exceptions when needed. We can make room requests ahead of time, but only get confirmations about 2 months out. Notices about meetings are updated on this web site as well as emailed to our list serves and placed on our Facebook Pages & Groups.

The Hamilton County Green Party has not gotten confirmation any in person meeting dates, so we are doing a call this week instead:

As you know the Green Party is no longer an official party in Ohio due to not getting a high enough percent of the votes in the 2018 Ohio Governor’s race.  In Hamilton County, this is still our old web page address but it is not updated as much as it should be.  The meeting page is the most current, but we are not able to meet in person due to covid.  

We are having a conference call instead of an in-person meeting this Thursday evening, August 6th at 7:00 PM.  Your phone will need to be able to make long distance calls to participate, but I can personally three-way call in one person if you want to join us but don’t have free long distance on your phone.  


If you want to join the call, please send your email address to me, Gwen Marshall, at swohgp@fuse.net and I will include you in the email that goes out to all who are participating in the call with the phone number and access code at about 5PM on Thursday.  


The main purpose of this call is to see who wants to be on the Central Committee for the Hamilton County Green Party for the next 2 years; up to 15 people are able to serve.  Gender balance is required if we have more people wanting to serve than 15.  The second purpose of this call is to see who wants to be on the Central Committee for the Ohio Green Party for the next 2 years.  Hamilton County and Warren County are in district 4 together and we are allowed to have up to 4 members on this committee and gender balance is required if we have more than 4 who want to serve.


To be eligible to become a member of either of these committees you must have not voted in another party’s primary in the 2020 election cycle.  If you voted in the non partisan bus levy or didn’t vote at all but had voted in the 2018 Green Party primary, you are still officially a Green Party member in Ohio at least for the rest of 2020.  


This is the primary purpose of the meeting/call is to see who wants to be on the committee, after that is determined then we can discuss any other appropriate business that is suggested by any Green Party member on the call.  

You do not need to be a Green Party member to attend these meetings, you only need to want to help support the Green Party in any way appropriate to you.
