Perry Redd for DC City Council, At-Large in 2013

The DC Statehood Green Party was simply looking for a different and fresh candidate-more reflective of the party's constituency-who could mount a serious challenge to the mainstream Democrats, who hold one-perty rule over our city. Perry Redd was a bold and realistic choice...

The DC Statehood Green Party's values are Perry Redd's values. The Republicrats (that is, the "Democrats") are not the answer -- unless you want more of the same: poorly performing schools, poor public safety, corrupt government, high unemployment, childhood poverty, inadequate city services, and politicians for sale.

As an alternative, the second largest party in the city-the DC Statehood Green Party-is not a corporate party. DC Statehood Green Party candidates are not for sale. They do not accept corporate donations. Our platform clearly shows where we stand on issues that matter to everyday people.

The DC Statehood Green Party is the party with the candidates you can trust to be transparent, accountable and accessible.
