October 21, 2010 in State Wide Elections
On Friday October 22nd, supporters of the Howie Hawkins for New York Governor campaign will hold an online money bloom to raise money for the Green Party candidate, who has seen a surge of support since Monday’s 7-way gubernatorial debate. The event is on facebook with the name “Howie Hawkins Money Bloom: Support the Green New Deal!”
Can you donate $10 on Friday October 22nd to help Howie Hawkins, NY Green Party candidate for Governor, reach voters with his message of a Green New Deal?
Howie Hawkins is calling for a Green New Deal for New York State. His message: by taxing Wall Street and the super-rich and creating a state bank, we can fix the budget gap and invest in creating well-paying green jobs for all New Yorkers who need them.
Like all Green candidates, Howie Hawkins supports single-payer health care, fully funded education, a living wage, marriage equality, legalizing marijuana, and a ban on hydrofracking. He is the only candidate with a comprehensive plan to fix NY State government, including proportional representation, instant runoff voting, and public campaign financing.
Howie Hawkins needs 50,000 votes for Governor for the Green Party to win a ballot line in New York for the next 4 years. That will make it much easier for the Green Party to run candidates for local office and state legislature where Greens can win and turn our values into public policy.
Every single vote for Howie Hawkins builds momentum for the Green movement, a people-powered grassroots movement for peace, social justice, grassroots democracy, ecology, and politics that puts people before profits.
Watch this video for just a sample of the message we want to share with thousands of New Yorkers:
Please donate $10 (or more if you can) and spread the word by inviting your friends to the Howie Hawkins Money Bloom!
