Green Party Candidate for Governor of Indiana
Dr. George Wolfe
The Indiana Green Party has announced Dr. George Wolfe, Professor Emeritus at Ball State University, as their candidate for Governor in the 2020 November election. During his 32 years of teaching at the university, Professor Wolfe served as Director of the Ball State University Center for Peace and Conflict Studies from 2002 to 2006 and Outreach Coordinator from 2006 to 2014.
For George, It is important to challenge the status quo and contribute Green Party ideas to the political conversation. He is an experienced educator and environmental activist. His two main issues are (1) teacher pay and support for public schools, and (2) cooperating with market forces as we move our state energy production towards greater reliance on solar, wind, and geothermal energy.
George would (1) Address the concerns of Indiana teachers with increased salaries and funding for public schools; (2) In cooperation with Indiana-Michigan electric, support a 10 year plan to phase out coal plants and shift to solar and wind energy production; and (3) Reform our elections by promoting greater reliance on paper ballots (mail in voting) and by instituting "Ranked Choice Voting" so minor party candidates will not be viewed as "spoilers."
We are currently petitioning for Dr. Wolfe to be on the ballot. If you are an Indiana resident and want to help, please print and sign a petition below, and have as many of your neighbors and friends in the district sign it as well. You can fit up to 10 signatures on each petition sheet, including your own. Then fill out the two "county" lines at the top with your county, and complete the bottom portion of the form labeled "Petition Carrier Certification", and that's it! (You don't need to complete any part of page 2, but it does need to be printed on the back)
You can use either of the CAN-19 petition forms below. Dr. Wolfe is able to share a petition with the Green Party's Presidential Candidate, but since we won't officially know who our Presidential candidate is until mid-July, you have the option to petition for whoever you want. Indiana allows for candidate substitution should one of these candidates not receive the Green Party's nomination in July:
- CAN-19 Petition for Dr. George Wolfe and Howie Hawkins
- CAN-19 Petition for Dr. George Wolfe and Dario Hunter
The petition forms must be submitted to your county's voter registration office. You can mail them yourself, or you can send them to us and we will take care of it. Please let us know if you do submit any of these petitions and let us know the number of signatures you are submitting. Thanks!
