NWI Green Party Crossroads

NWI Green Party Crossroads

‍Visitor, your NWI Green Party has been focused on two exciting campaigns in the region and it is gearing up for a very busy November 7th.  In Hobart Joseph Conn is running for City Council At-Large and in Portage Rev. Michael Cooper is running for Mayor. They need your help on election day at polling locations in Hobart and Portage. The NWI Green Party is looking for volunteers that have some time this Nov. 7th to stand outside a polling location in either Portage or Hobart and hold a candidate sign.


This is a long and busy day for our candidates and their teams, so any extra help throughout the day to fill in the gaps would help our candidates get more recognition as voters enter the polling location. This means standing outside (you can bring a lawn chair) and greeting voters with a smile while holding one our signs. Polls are open from 6am to 6pm and if you can spend an hour up to all day at a poll to grow our movement in Lake and Porter county, please let us know. Hopefully the weather will be nice. You can reply to this email, contact us on Facebook or our website to get more information.

Nov 23 Strategize


The Northwest Indiana Green Party will be meeting at Sips Coffeehouse in Hobart for our next monthly meeting on Sunday, November 12th at 2pm. Sips  is located at 310 Main Street in downtown Hobart, IN and you can find us at one of the tables. We will be decompressing after the general election and looking at our next steps. Join your local Greens for this time to socialize and strategize for our environment and our democracy. Any updates to the meeting will be posted on Facebook.

Rev Michael Values

‍Rev. Michael C. Cooper - Mayor, Portage, Indiana

As a resident of Portage for over a decade, I have witnessed the stagnation of our city and the lack of progress in embracing the future. While new half-million-dollar home subdivisions have been developed, the older, affordable neighborhoods have been ignored and left without proper infrastructure, quality of life, and economic development. That’s why I am running for mayor, to refocus the city’s efforts on improving the experience of our residents, businesses, and visitors.

I am passionate about creating opportunities for education and community advancement in trades, traditional crafts, and the arts. I want to bring the social services that our residents need to improve all areas of our city with equity. Portage is a large and diverse city situated in a National Park, and I believe that positions us to be a driving force for green development and green jobs.

‍Joseph Conn - City Council At-Large, Hobart, Indiana

As a Hobart resident for more that 50 years, I’m concerned about our local local environment. I remain active in Hobart’s No Re-Zone grass roots movement to halt the city’s plan to turn 660 acres of farmland south of 61st Avenue on both sides of Colorado Street into an industrial zone. If fully built out with factories, warehouses and truck terminals, the industrial park could draw as many as 2,100 truck trips a day to what is now a residential and agricultural area. Both of the two incumbent At-Large city council members who are running for re-election voted for the industrial zone. I intend to make this campaign, in part, a referendum on their decision and finding alternatives to this bad plan for Hobart with a transparent process open to the ideas of our citizens.
