You may recognize Howie Hawkins from the 2020 Presidential Election when he ran for POTUS as the Green Party candidate. He is now running for Governor of New York for a fourth time. He ran in 2010, 2014, and 2018, each time receiving enough votes to qualify the Green Party for a ballot line for the next four years. This time NY made it tougher for third parties to make it on the ballot, but his fight continues. He also ran for local office in Syracuse and pulled in as much as 48% of the vote one year. Howie was the first candidate to run on a Green New Deal as well. In 1991 he arrived in Syracuse to develop cooperatives for CommonWorks, a federation of cooperatives that promoted cooperative ownership, democratic control, and ecological sustainability in the local economy. He is currently a member of Vietnam Veterans Against the War, American Legion Dunbar Post 1642 in Syracuse, and Teamsters for a Democratic Union. You can learn more at www.hawkinsmattera.org.
