The Green Party is planning to build upon Davis' success by running candidates in local Philadelphia elections to be held during 2015. Chris Robinson, a member of the Green Party City Committee, said, "People who are fed up with the two corporate parties should consider running for office on the Green Party ballot. Most voters understand that the Democrats and Republicans have no plan to improve our quality of life. The corporate politicians seem content to keep our children uneducated, they have no desire to reverse climate change, and they are unconcerned about mass incarceration. Only the Green Party runs candidates on a platform to improve our culture, our economy and our environment."
Glenn Davis, chair of the Greens' City Committee, said, "The Green Party also plans to educate voters and register new Green Party members during 2015. We will spread the word that there is now an independent alternative to the two corporate parties, a Green Party that takes no funding from corporations."
Hillary Kane, the Green Party's treasurer, said, "I am looking forward to 2015, which will be a local election year. We have so many important issues here in Philadelphia such as public school funding and high poverty. I will be excited to get behind a Green Party candidate who will shed light on these crucial matters."
