Dekalb County Green Party Supports Cynthia McKinney in
Her Effort to Return to Congress

The Dekalb County Green Party resolved to urge its
members and supporters to work and vote for
Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in the upcoming primary
on August 20th.

Congresswoman McKinney is an outstanding
representative in Washington. D.C. For all the
residents of Dekalb County. She has an excellent
legislative record on the environment, on the equal
rights of women, people of color. Immigrants, gays and
lesbians and working people and on such pressing
issues as health care,education and Social Security.
As conservative forces led by the Bush administration
seek to take advantage of the terrible events of
September 11 to restrict civil liberties, stigmatize
the least among us reward the rich with tax breaks
and the corporations with military contracts and
rollback environmental, labor and consumer
protections, Congresswoman McKinney has been a voice
of conscience and reason for peaceful justice rather
than endless war. The Greens will not sit idly by
while Congresswoman McKinney faces attack from
Georgia's corporate and political elite said Badili
Jones, co-chair of the Dekalb County Green Party, Now
more thane ever she deserves our active support.'

The Green Party of Dekalb County calls upon its
members and supporters s well as all
environmentalists, progressives and fellow citizens in
Georgia's 4th District to campaign, contribute and
vote for Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney in the primary
on August 20th. Please encourage everyone to vote in
their best interest for Cynthia McKinney.###
