The Green Party of Alameda County invites you to a Green Sunday discussion about the November 4 general election.

Who won in the election - the 1% or the rest of us?

Bring your friends as well as your opinions, ideas, and plans. We will look at the results of the November 4 election with a focus on how we can use the power we have to create a better world.

Sunday, Nov 9, 2014, 5 pm

LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland.


DIRECTIONS: One block north of Alcatraz on the West side of Telegraph, wheelchair accessible. Buses pass by regularly. Ashby BART is approximately 7 blocks away.

Questions to address include:

* Was it a good idea to boycott the state races?
* Is it a good idea to do what huge numbers of eligible voters do: boycott the whole election?
* What were the overall and specific results of this particular election, and what does it mean for our future planning?
* How do we get a better democracy, better government, better quality of life?
* Bottom line question, “How can we make the best use of the power and resources — time, money and energy — that we have?"

LAURA WELLS - Green Party candidate for State Controller in the June primary

Guest:
BARRY HERMANSON - Green Party candidate for Congress in the June primary, Nancy Pelosi's seat in SF
