Jules for Judge Attends Cannabis Day and All Music Festival on Earth Day Weekend

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.

Next Saturday starting at 10am, join us next in Pheonixville, PA where the Green Party of Pennsylvania is organizing to canvass and collect signatures for Jules and other local candidates. In the afternoon, all Green Party members and observers are welcome to attend the quarterly state business meeting held in the Pheonixville Library at 12:30pm. 

 

Jules will be available Saturday afternoon for any members of the public who would like to meet Jules and ask questions about the campaign!

Join us on March 16th in Scranton With Senator Casey's Office on Protecting the EPA

 Jules Mermelstein for Judge

UPDATE: The EPA Forum has been moved to Monday, March 27th at 6:30pm due to inclement weather. It will be held at the same location, Temple Hesed in Scranton. Follow Protect the EPA on Facebook for further updates.
------------------
Jules Mermelstein will be on a panel with a representative from Senator Casey's office and others at the Environmental Protection Advocacy Forum.
 
The Trump administration has taken steps to eliminate the EPA, which works to protect Pennsylvania land and water. In addition to supporting the EPA, Jules also believes that for too long our state has ignored Article I Section 27 of the Pennsylvania State Constitution which reads:

 

"The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people."

 

Jules Mermelstein needs volunteers at the event to help gain signatures for nominating papers and to hand out campaign flyers.

 

Please help us ensure that Pennsylvania's esthetic values are protected for generations yet to come!

National Organization, Food & Water Watch, Inviting Local Greens to Coalition

 

On March 1st, the Bucks County Green Chapter was visited by representative, Ethan Wampler, on behalf of Food & Water Watch.

 

The organization is working to get as many groups as possible to sign onto a coalition letter that will be used to urge Senators and Congress members to do everything possible to protect the EPA and environment going forward. They have notably gathered energy across Maryland to end fracking in the state. 

 

Bucks County immediately joined, and the letter is circulating to reach other Green Party Chapters across Pennsylvania. Jules Mermelstein also signed the letter in an individual capacity as a former local elected official.
