Illinois Greens to Meet in C-U to Plan for 2010


The Illinois Green Party will start getting ready for the 2010 elections at its semiannual meeting this weekend in Champaign and Urbana.

Illinois Green Party chairman Phil Huckleberry says the party members expect to hear from candidates looking for support from the Greens in the Feb. 2 primaries.

Party organizers expect more than 100 people to attend the two-day meeting, Saturday in Champaign and Sunday in Urbana.

The Greens are the only party in the state other than Republicans and Democrats eligible to field candidates for every office in the state.
