The WFP is the minor party with major ambitions — ambitions to build an economy that works for working people, ambitions to revitalize our democracy by bringing in people fed up with the two-party deadlock… and ambitions to be around for the long haul. To accomplish all three of these lofty goals, we need more people to join our Party. The more people that do, the more the politicians take notice, and the closer we get to achieving permanent ballot status in the State, so that we can keep up the fight for years to come.

Recently, I did something really important. I registered with the Oregon Working Families Party. I joined the Oregon WFP because they are fighting for the things that really matter, like good jobs, good schools, and quality, affordable health care. I joined the WFP to send a message to politicians in the state that it’s time to get our economy working for working families like ours, not Wall Street banks and DC lobbyists.
The Oregonian did a fantastic piece on the WFP a little while back which sums up nicely what the Party is about. Click here to read the article: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2010/05/small_party_wants_bigger_say_o.html
The Working Families Party is an independent voice that’s working to make sure that politicians are accountable to regular people.
Today, I’m writing to ask you to take a stand with me and join the Working Families Party as well.

The Working Families Party is a different kind of minor party. Oregon recently re-legalized “fusion voting,” which allows minor parties like the WFP to cross-nominate candidates from other parties – and support whichever candidates are committed to our values. This allows the WFP to be an independent voice without asking voters to throw their votes away on spoiler candidates who can’t win. The WFP can have a positive impact on elections – and work to hold elected officials in all parties accountable for their positions on the issues that matter most.
More than 3,000 people have already signed up. The Working Families Party needs to get to 10,000 registrations to earn permanent ballot status. If each person who is already registered got two more people to register, we’d be most of the way there.
When you register with the OWFP, you can still vote for whichever candidates you like. But by registering, you are helping to build a movement for an economy that works for all Oregonians. Right now, I can’t think of anything we need more.
