On June 3, 2015, the Latvian Parliament elected Green Party member Raimonds Vejonis to be its new President. Vejonis is the European Union's first Green Party leader of a nation-state.
CONGRATULATIONS to these Illinois Green Party members who won elections for public office on April 7:
Steve Alesch (Warrenville Park Board),
Peter Schwartzman (Galesburg City Council), and
Adrian Frost (Plano Library Board).
A big THANK YOU to these candidates, to the other Greens who ran for office in 2015, and to their supporters, for bringing Green values to the electoral forum.
