Gregory "Greg" Pason (born April 19, 1966) is an American democratic socialist politician, activist, and National Secretary of the Socialist Party USA, a position he has held for over 20 years. Additionally, Pason has served in various positions in the Socialist Party of New Jersey and Northern New Jersey Socialist Party, currently serving as treasurer of the former and chair of the latter.[1] Outside of the Socialist Party, Pason currently serves as:

Committee Member, Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Advisory Committee- Montclair, NJ

Co-Director, Indie Arts Montclair [2]

Staff, Terry' Serendipity Cafe

Member, ABC-No-Rio Punk/NC Collective

He has formally served as:

Co-chair of the New Jersey branch of the National Writers Union

Chair of the Coalition for Free and Open Elections.[3]

Pason joined the Party in 1989, shortly after joining the Party's official youth arm, the Young People's Socialist League (YSPL).

As the National Secretary, Pason runs the day-to-day business of the Party, out of the national office in New York City.

He has run for several public offices in the past two decades, including two campaigns for Governor of New Jersey and four campaigns for the United States Senate. He has achieved ballot status for all seven of his campaigns, a rarity for perennial candidates.
