SC Greens on National Committees

The South Carolina Green Party is entitled to seat two members on almost all national committees, but as our numbers are not that big, we have only a few members serving at the national level.

Bill Bobo serves on the Eco Action Committee.
David Whiteman serves on the Green National Committee.
Jermaine Simmons serves on the International Committee.

If you have an interest in serving on a national committee, please write the steering committee. We can be reached at SC-greenparty_steeringcom@yahoogroups.com

South Carolina Greens in Office

Since he was first elected to the James Island Public Service District in 1993, Eugene Platt has worked to assure a high level of service for the PSD's constituents and fought to save that community from excessive development by short-sighted, often greedy developers.

Eugene joined the Green Party earlier in 2008 because he sees in the Green Party the sort of respect for the environment and a commitment to planning and vision for a future we want to leave future generations.

Eugene joins the ranks for the hundreds of elected Greens who serve their voters in roles much like Eugene does. Focused more on doing things for the people he was elected to serve than on advancing their careers, public servants like Eugene, Lee Jane and Preston below show all Greens the value of putting people first.

In addition to our sole elected Green, party members serve in South Carolina in these appointed positions:

Preston Holston
Conservation Commission
Richland County

Lee Jane Kaufman
Tree and Beautification Commission
City of Columbia

The South Carolina Green Party is proud to be associated with each of these public officials.

SC Green endorsed candidates on the ballot Tuesday

South Carolina is one of several states which permit fusion. Fusion means that a candidate appears on the ballot as the nominee of more than one party and wins the accumulated vote of all ballot lines.

Eugene Platt, a candidate in Tuesday's Democratic primary, is one such candidate. In his case, if he secures the Democratic nomination in his race for State House seat 115, he will appear as the nominee of both the democratic and Green Parties.

Platt secured the Green Party nomination at the state convention held in Columbia on May 3rd, and the Green Party encourages those voting in the Democratic Party primary on Tuesday to vote Platt.

Platt also has a Face Book webpage, and he'd love to have you sign up if you too have a page there.

Platt's campaign manager, his son Paul, is a Green from San Francisco, and as he pointed out in a message to the state mailing list, Platt's campaign has helped put the Green Party in Charleston on the map by buying advertisements in his district (Charleston) media pointing out his nomination by the Greens and the Working Families Party as a sign to Democrats that the time to support real change is now.

Please contact the Platt campaign if you can help on election day. He can be reached by calling 843-795-9442.
