Open Letter to the Humboldt Green Party
I think you are deluding yourself if you think the aggression has ceased in our party. I feel much hostility still from some of our members who feel it is necessary to berate, prod, and antagonize other board members with short, curt displays of intolerance and belittling. I, for one, have had enough of the Steering Committee and the shame it has caused the party with all the power grabbing and disrespect it has shown.
Without a measure or an election, the party moves at a slugs pace. There is very little commitment outside of special interests and immediate rewriting and undoing of any progress that had occurred previous to this current Steering Committee. It's enough to turn someone away from registering Green.
Since you and the "Grandstanding Greens" have decided to mow your way through, I will step out of your way and concede my position as Eureka Rep.
I am sure this pleases you to no end, as I have obviously been a distraction and an unwelcome member from the start. Someone will be elected at the next Eureka Greens meeting, hopefully
, and someone other than David Cobb and his protegees will take this spot and bridge some understanding between the differing politics of our schismed band of rebels.
Here's one last suggestion. Try encompassing local issues and make some change at a grass roots level. You will have more impact if you are addressing problems closer to home. Its the Green Party, not
the U.N. You can shout and protest the war till you are blue in the face, but that wont help the locals and their immediate needs for a safer community. Start with the utility companies and their crooked practices.
Think on that while your doing your closing circle.
Adios,David Giarrizzo Ex-Delegate Eureka Greens
P.S. As I established and have operated this blog throughout its existence, I would also invite other Eureka Greens members to come on over and contribute to a forum based on free speech. The Eureka Greens have planned to have their own dedicated website for sometime and now is definitely the time to implement it.The time has come for those with a conscience to come forth.
Let freedom ring!
