The Green Party of Colorado has been acting outside of its bylaws for the past two years. The state party held its 2018 state nominating convention in Boulder County without the involvement or participation of the Greater Boulder Green Party, the Jefferson County Green Party, or the Douglass County Green Party.
The Green Party of Colorado has nominated candidates for every general election since 1994. 2018 is the first time the Green Party of Colorado has failed to nominate any candidates for state or feral office. Green Party of Colorado candidates who were nominated for statewide or Congressional office in 2012, 2014, and 2016 have been illegitimately banned from participating in the state party by the Green Party of Colorado’s State Council. The Greater Boulder Green Party rejects the authoritarianism of the Green Party of Colorado’s State Council.
The Greater Boulder Green Party voted by consensus to support the nomination of a slate of “Green Values Coalition” write-in candidates for all seven of Colorado’s US House of Representative seats. Candidates for this slate must agree to embrace the “Ten Key Values” of the Green Party of the United States.
