This past weekend, the Jules for Judge campaign hit the road to visit events celebrating sustainability and freedom for Earth Day.
From Thursday through Saturday night, the Ambler Food Co-Op in Ambler, PA helped host an All Music Festival and Sustainability Conference. During the days from 12pm to 5pm, people attended workshops for music industry education and environmental panels on reducing carbon footprints. At night from 7pm to close, dozens of bands played at popular venues including Gypsy Blu and Giuseppe's.
Jules received endorsements from musicians throughout the night who were thrilled to mention his campaign as they took to the stage.
On Sunday, Jules and volunteers traveled to Scranton, PA to celebrate the third annual Cannabis Festival held in Nay Aug National Park. Jules was met by enthusiastic community members who believe there should be an end to sentencing for "victimless crime." The goal of the festival, as described by The Times Leader, is to bring the counterculture of cannabis into mainstream acceptance.
Between the All Music Festival and Cannabis Day, Jules's team managed to attract over 300 voters from 27 different counties to sign the petition for Jules to be on the ballot as a Superior Court Judge candidate.
The March for Science was another event held this past weekend, and volunteers with the Jules for Judge campaign were present in Doylestown, PA to collect signatures from those also concerned with our court's treatment of Article 1, Section 27 of Pennsylvania's Constitution, which protects our land and water for generations yet to come.
Jules will be available Saturday afternoon for any members of the public who would like to meet Jules and ask questions about the campaign!
On March 7th, Jules Mermelstein was interviewed by Caitlin Johnstone, previously a writer with The Inquisitr and now owner of Newslogue.com where her following has crowdfunded her to write independent media.
On the call, Caitlin asks about the "DemExit" movement and Jules' reasons for going Green after five terms as a Democrat. Coming from the unique swing state of Pennsylvania, Jules recaps the fascinating turn of events during the general election, and what he hopes to do with his position on the Superior Court if elected on November 7th.
