Special Green Sunday: Emeryville Mayor Scott Donahue Registers Green, and Report-Back on Mar. 11-12 state Green Party meeting
Emeryville Mayor Scott Donahue has decided to register Green at our next Green Sunday, on March 26 – please join us to celebrate! (Note: due to the March 11-12 state Green Party meeting, we didn’t hold Green Sunday this month on the second Sunday – instead, it will be held on the 4th Sunday of March).
Four years after graduating art school in Philadelphia, Scott discovered that Emeryville had an abundance of empty warehouse space, and he’s been in Emeryville ever since. He is a co-founder of the Emeryville Artist Cooperative, and is also an avid biker and longtime proponent of bikeability in Emeryville.
Scott was elected to the City Council in 2014, and became Mayor a few months ago. Scott will talk about why he’s decided to register Green, and about local Emeryville issues. In addition, we will also have a report-back about the March 11-12 state Green Party Meeting in Bakersfield, which was the best-attended state meeting in many years, with Jill Stein being the featured Saturday evening speaker.

LOCATION: Niebyl-Proctor Library, 6501 Telegraph Ave. at 65th in North Oakland
