For my service learning project I have partnered up with Harley Mikkelson who is the Vice President of the Tuscola County Green Party and also co-chairs the Flint Greens. In the world of politics not much is usually discussed in regards to what many call "third parties". The Green Party essentially has a liberal viewpoint in regards to social and economic issues. Probably one of the most well known members of this organization is Ralph Nader, who was viewed by many to be a viable presidential candidate in the 2000 and 2004 election. There are currently websites available to those who would like more information on the values held by those affiliated with the Green Party. However, at this time there is not one specifically for residents of Tuscola County. My hope is to successfully create one that the current members would be proud of.
