The Independent Green Party is the Maine affiliate of the national Green Party. From the Bangor Daily News:
Members of Maine’s Green Independent Party will gather in Greene this weekend for an annual convention dedicated to the memory of a Deer Isle resident and party leader who died recently.
Jack Harrington, 63, served on the Green Independent Party’s steering committee and was a delegate to the national party. An Army and Navy veteran and a retired federal employee, Harrington was also active in numerous Deer Isle-area civic and community service organizations, including Deer Isle Grange 296 and Hospice of Hancock County as well as the national organization Veterans for Peace…
Harrington will be honored posthumously with the “Green of the Year” award this Saturday during the party’s annual state convention, to be held at the Androscoggin Grange in Greene.
