Gregory "Greg" Pason (born April 19, 1966) is an American democratic socialist politician, activist, and National Secretary of the Socialist Party USA. 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. Outside of the Socialist Party, Pason has served as co-chair of the New Jersey branch of the National Writers Union, as well as chair of the Coalition for Free and Open Elections.
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.
