Syracuse activist to launch gubernatorial bid as Green Party candidate

  • Text size: + -

Syracuse-based Green Party activist Howie Hawkins is set to launch another bid for governor next week following a 2010 campaign that resulted in receiving 59,906 votes.

Hawkins easily helped the third party achieve ballot access for this coming election by surpassing the 50,000-vote threshold.

In a news release, Hawkins says he will make the announcement on Wednesday in Albany.

His candidacy in 2010 focused on broader investment in environmentally friendly technology as well as infrastructure and mass transit.

He also supports ban on hydrofracking and the transition to a “carbon neutral economy” in 15 years.
