Howie Hawkins seeks 2014 Green nomination for New York Governor

p howie hawkinsFrom HowieHawkins.org:

Watch Capital Tonight with Liz Benjamin interview with Howie on his campaign.

Governor Cuomo delivered his annual State of the State address outlining his priorities for the coming legislative session. We heard more of the same from Governor 1%: Talk Left, Walk Right. Cuomo touted prosperity while practicing austerity.

Cuomo says he’s providing tax relief for the middle class but his “reforms” will soak the working class by forcing local governments and school districts to make deep cuts. His tax reforms will push dozens of local governments toward insolvency and anti-democratic state takeovers by Financial and Educational Control Boards, like Detroit and Philly.

Read Hawkins’ response to Cuomo’s State of the State on the Green Party NY website.

Howie Hawkins is seeking the Green Party’s nomination to run for Governor in order to advance the Green Party’s platform for fundamental, structural change: Progressive Taxes and Revenue Sharing to end the fiscal crises of our local governments and schools, Tuition-Free Public Colleges and Universities, Single Payer Health Care, $15 Minimum Wage, Public Banking, Union Co-ops, a Ban on Fracking, a Climate Acton Program scaled up to meet the crisis, and more.
