Members of the Green Party of Philadelphia (GPOP, ) have elected new leaders for 2014. Meeting at the Ethical Society on Rittenhouse Square on February 26, Green Party members voted for a new GPOP City Committee. There were eleven candidates running for seven offices.

The new chair of GPOP will be Glenn Davis from Ward 4. The other officers will be Hillary Kane of Ward 46, treasurer; Kristin Combs of Ward 31, recording secretary; and Eric Hamell of Ward 59, membership secretary. The three at-large City Committee members will be Bernadette Cronin-Geller from Ward 21; Galen Tyler from Ward 64; and Chris Robinson from Ward 59. Combs, Cronin-Geller and Tyler have never before been elected to a Green Party office.

The candidates chosen to lead the party during the coming year agree with a five point program to improve the Green Party: increase Green Party membership and diversity; run and elect more candidates; achieve a positive awareness of the Green Party; pursue closer ties with other progressive movements; and develop a structure in line with Green Party goals.

Hillary Kane, the newly elected GPOP treasurer, said, "I really want to work to get our members out in neighborhoods, talking to other folks about Paul Glover, our candidate for Governor, our overall platform, and why they should join the Green Party. We offer the only real alternative for Philadelphians who are concerned about education, the environment, the economy, and healthcare."

Chris Robinson said, "I believe that this City Committee will work hard as a team and will take GPOP to new heights in membership."

The Green Party is an independent political party founded on the four pillars of nonviolence, grassroots democracy, ecological wisdom and social justice. For more information about the Green Party of Philadelphia, please telephone 215-243-7103.
