Keenen is a candidate of the North Carolina Green Party, a dues paying membership organization independent of corporations and the wealthy elite. As a resident of Winston Salem he is running for County Commissioner to create rent control tied to wages, stop the County detention center from being used to lock up immigrants, demilitarize the Sheriff's department, create property tax exemption for working class people and a graduated property tax increase on the rich, and make the electrical grid powered by renewable energy and democratic ownership.
Graduating with an associates degree in Sustainable Technology from Cape Fear Community College in 2015 helped him understand that Capitalism is the underlying barrier to social progress and renewable energy even though that was not the goal of the College. Between temporary jobs he works on renewable energy concepts but is limited by time and resources. All working class people experience such limits. Overcoming these limits require a political shift that values people over profit.
The Green Party is Anti-capitalist and believes democratic ownership of workplaces is necessary in stopping the overproduction causing climate change and pollution. However, to do this, we need to build political power around these ideas which requires resources. Since Capitalism is the current system we still need money to operate which is why we ask you to support this campaign with a donation.
But don't stop there! Come and organize with us.
