America's leading Independent Green,
Mayor Bloomberg to Huddle With Top Congressional Leaders
by Colin Campbell
Mayor Michael Bloomberg just released his public schedule
for tomorrow, and it’s a doozy. Throughout the day, the mayor is set to meet with over a half-dozen members of the country’s
congressional leadership, including Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Majority
Leader Eric Cantor and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Also on the list is former presidential candidate John McCain, a couple
moderate Republicans and a press conference with New York’s two senators on the city’s request for billions of dollars in federal aid
in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Here at the Draft Michael Bloomberg Committee - we continue to be convinced Mayor Bloomberg is the one national leader that can combine Independents and the Green
Party to create America's third major party. Michael Bloomberg allies, and Bloomberg led Indy Green candidates on the ballot
in all local, state, and federal races is the positive solution. A Michale Bloomberg Green New Deal could create American
infrastructure jobs, rail jobs, solar jobs, wind jobs, geothermal jobs, weatherization jobs. Bloomberg eco for the economy.
That's the positive Bloomberg solution.

Michael Bloomberg please reconsider and run as Green Party candidate
10:32 pm edt
for the Country
Published: April 17, 2012
I had to catch a train in Washington last week. The paved street in the traffic circle around
Union Station was in such poor condition that I felt as though I was on a roller coaster. I traveled on the Amtrak Acela,
our sorry excuse for a fast train, on which I had so many dropped calls on my cellphone that you’d have thought I was
on a remote desert island, not traveling from Washington to New York City. When I got back to Union Station, the escalator
in the parking garage was broken. Maybe you’ve gotten used to all this and have stopped noticing. I haven’t. Our
country needs a renewal.
is why I still hope Michael Bloomberg will reconsider running for president as an independent candidate, if only to participate
in the presidential debates and give our two-party system the shock it needs.

to run as a Green Party candidate) read more of Mr. Friedman's pro Bloomberg - pro rail article at:

Bloomberg, Independents, & Green Party a strong positive force
9:44 am edt
Michael Bloomberg, America's leading Green.
Michael Bloomberg has the smarts,
experience, resources, and popular support to change U.S. Green Party politics with a simple: Yes. With Michael Bloomberg
as the U.S Green Party leader, the U.S. media blackout of the Green Party would end.
Many of us hope to hear Michael Bloomberg say:
Michael Bloomberg will join and seek to lead the UnitedStates Green Party in electing members of the U.S. House of Representatives,
U.S Senate. And elect Green Party candidates to local and state government."
Even more we would love to hear Michael Bloomberg say, " I am running for President of the United States."
As the Green Party nominee for President, Michael Bloomberg could lead a full slate of Green Party candidates into
office. Yes, we know Michael Bloomberg has said he will not run for President.
have hope, he might change his mind in 2012. There is still a little time. The Green Party convention is in July
in Baltimore. Greens understand. Noone else is like Michael Bloomberg with the capacity to change the American
political dynamic in 2012. The Green Party is the United States third largest political party. Combine Independents
and Greens as only Bloomberg can do, and you have made the Green Party America's next major party.
The Green Party presidential primary is well underway. It's been a well run, and positive presidential primary
for the Green Party in the U.S. Easily the Greens best ever. Retired medical Doctor Jill Stein has run a "friendly,
intelligent, constructive campaign". Housewife. Mother. Dr. Stein is a veteran Green Party politico having
run twice for Governor. She knows how to run a large campaign. Dr. Stein is running on the "Green New Deal",
and as a "fiscal hawk". Both have been platforms that have elected Green Party candidates to office around
the world. The up beat Dr. Stein Green Party campaign is growing the party, bringing new people to the Greens, and exciting
the base. According to most reports Dr. Stein has received about 50% of all delegates
awarded so far. Under Green Party convention rules, Dr. Stein has not clinched the delegates required to have the nomination
wrapped up before the convention. The Green Party will still likely have an Open Convention.
Hollywood, TV, and Movie Star Rosanne Barr got into the Green Party presidential primary very late. Rosanne
filed so late, she missed the deadline for many Green Party state primaries. Still Rosanne Barr has impressed. Rosanne
broke the media blackout for the Greens a few days. Rosanne offered a strong message to Greens. A successful business
woman, and internationally known entertainer, Rosanne Barr is running second in the Green Party presidential primary. Even,
when most of her votes have been write ins. Rosanne Barr is on the California Green Party primary ballot. Rosanne
could receive a huge block of delegates there, and go into the convention generating excitment and attention.
Dr. Kent Mesplay is the third Green Party candidate seeking the Presidential nomination to have
won significant delegates so far in the primary.
Michael Bloomberg has
the ability in the next three months to change the American political landscape in a profound way and in that process fundamentally
grow the U.S. Green Party into the nation's leading political party.
leading the Green Party could and would mean a brand new race, not just for President, but also for Green Party candidates
elected to the U.S. Congress. Bloomberg action now in concert with the Green Party could energize the American body
politic and provide the positive Green solutions America and the world need. Michael Bloomberg is the man to lead this
Let's remember. It
was a Green Party, the Independent Green Party of Virginia that actually put Michael Bloomberg on their ballot line for President.
That was four years ago. There is a successful record of the Bloomberg and Independent Green Party alliance. It
is time to renew, and grow green with Michael Bloomberg.
Please say yes, Mr. Bloomberg.

Buildings dominate New York City's carbon footprint. Approximately 75 percent of New York City's carbon
emissions stem from energy used in buildings, and today's existing buildings will make up 85 percent of all real estate in
Therefore, increasing the energy efficiency
of the city's existing buildings has been, and will continue to be, a central PlaNYC focus. Indeed, the full effects of the
City's energy efficiency efforts launched to date are expected to reduce annual citywide greenhouse gas emissions by 4.5 million
metric tons of CO2e by 2030, which is equivalent to nearly 7.5 percent of citywide 2005 baseline emissions. To address the
critical area of energy use in existing buildings, the City has enacted a set of efficiency requirements for existing private
and public sector buildings. In December 2009, Mayor Bloomberg signed the four legislative components of the Greener, Greater
Buildings Plan, the most comprehensive set of efficiency laws in the nation. Together these laws remove a loophole in the
energy code to ensure that it applies to all construction projects, require annual energy efficiency benchmarking that will
be disclosed to the public, and mandate a set of cost-effective energy efficiency upgrades and evaluations of the city's largest
buildings, both public and private.

Bloomberg and Green Party for rail: U.S. Must Modernize
Its Infrastructure, Invest In High-Speed
With GDP languishing and job-creation rates well below what’s needed
to put the economy back on track, the key to recovery lies with American infrastructure, says a green post partisan group
headed by Michael Bloomberg and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
U.S. infrastructure, far from being
the best in the world, is due for an overhaul, says the Building America’s Future Educational Fund, a Green coalition
that Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and Schwarzenegger, the former governor of California, co-chair with former Pennsylvania
governor Ed Rendell. If the country’s infrastructure isn’t modernized, they say, the U.S. will lose its competitive
“If we are going to maintain our economic dominance, we have to get
on the stick and get on it fast,” Rendell said earlier this week.
On Monday, the BAF Fund released a report calling upon policymakers to invest $200 billion a year in rail infrastructure for the next 10 years, a plan it says
could create nearly 5 million jobs over the next decade.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's
Top 10 Clean Energy Initiatives

Monday, August 15th, 2011
Michael Bloomberg has been the Mayor of New York City since January of 2002. One of
the biggest domestic issues that Mayor Bloomberg has been dealing with is New York’s role in preserving the environment,
building rail, and renewable energy. Aside from motivating his own city, Mayor Bloomberg has been instrumental leading C-40
cities around the world and motivating a number of other large cities to make changes. For the Green Party, Bloomberg
leads with deeds.
1) Extension of Compliance Deadline for Energy Benchmark Laws. Recently, Mayor Bloomberg
created a new energy benchmark law whereby commercial and residential buildings that take up more than 50,000 square feet
need to benchmark their total water and energy consumption. This is in an effort to see how much is used and how water consumption can be decreased and how buildings can become more
energy efficient. There are penalties associated with the law if these buildings do not comply with these laws.

Bloomberg in São Paulo: A Glimpse of the potential for America's Green Party Mayor/President
When it comes to sustainable transportation, Michael Bloomberg is saving his strongest words for an international audience.
While the mayor’s rhetoric on transportation now tends to focus on safety, when transportation is on his agenda at all, at a meeting of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group in São Paulo Bloomberg brought back some of his 2007-vintage
Said the mayor in his speech:
“The intense burning of fossil fuels in the world’s
cities – where 70 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are produced – not only contributes to
climate change, it also clogs the streets, pollutes the air, and shortens the lives of their millions of residents. How we
as mayors respond to these challenges will strongly determine the fate of the entire world, now and for decades to come.”
the current chair of the C40 project, was there to announce the release of two studies and a new partnership between the coalition of big-city mayors and the World Bank.
The first study created
a shared greenhouse gas reporting system for the C40 cities, allowing high-quality comparisons for the first time. The 42
C40 cities that participated were responsible for 1.2 billion metric tons of CO2 equivalent emissions, it found, roughly equivalent
to the emissions of Japan.
Numbers like that fed into what at times seemed to be a bit of urban policy triumphalism
on the part of the mayors. “Because of our shared experiences in leading the world’s great cities, and because,
more than anyone else, we grasp the urgency of the challenges we now face, no one can do more to produce good outcomes for
the world than we, the mayors of great cities, can,” said Bloomberg. http://www.streetsblog.org/2011/06/01/bloomberg-in-sao-paulo-a-glimpse-of-the-green-mayor/
We Need More candidates, Less Apathy
We NEED More Trains, Less Traffic
We NEED true fiscally conservative, and socially responsible people in federal office. Plain and simple.
It's socially responsible to balance the federal budget and pay off the federal debt within ten years.
Bloomberg can get the job done.
