Occupy Erie has endorsed a plan to use the upcoming Primary election to build the strength of the Movement and to send a message to both political parties. "The Occupy movement is deliberately non-partisan. That means we don't endorse particular candidates for office, and vice-versa. But the only way to change public policy is to engage in the political process. So this is one way for us to put the politicians on notice -- we pay attention, we care what happens, and we vote" OE member Rick Albertson.
Occupy Erie is asking everyone to at the minimum write in OCCUPY for all the uncontested races. For those who want to vote for a particular candidate in a contested race this is the perfect choice. One can vote in that race while still casting a vote for OCCUPY in races where the candidate is already guaranteed to be on the ballot in November. And for those who are not a fan of the choices in contested races one can also choose OCCUPY.
