Greens elect officers

Posted By on Tue, Jan 8, 2013 at 8:50 AM

Emily Good and Drew Langdon have been elected to serve as the 2013 co-chairs of the Monroe County Green Party, the party reports on its website. They replace Alex White and Vinessa Buckland.

Good and Langdon were elected for one-year terms during the party's December meeting. Good is an activist; in 2012 she was arrested by Rochester police as she made a video recording of a traffic stop. The arrest drew national attention from both the media and civil rights groups. The District Attorney's Office eventually dropped the charges against Good.

Langdon mounted an unsuccessful challenge against Democratic State Assembly member David Gantt last year. He ran solely on the Green Party line. Last year, Langdon served as secretary of the party.

The Greens also elected Tom Janowski as secretary and Michael Hendrick as treasurer.

    On almost any day or evening, the Flying Squirrel Community Space is home to a potpourri of progressive artists, musicians, and social justice activists. The Squirrel is a meeting space. But it’s also an organization with its own members, who often describe it as a collective: a community that’s part of other communities.
