Howie Hawkins, the Green Party nominee for Governor, will hold a news conference in Manhattan on Friday, August 17 at 10:30 AM in front of the southwest entrance to the subway at Union Square (near the Gandhi statue).
Hawkins will outline his plan to fix the NYC subway and mass transit system, including how to raise the revenues to finance it. Among the variety of revenue sources Hawkins will address are congestion pricing, a carbon tax, land value taxation, and increased taxes on the incomes and stock trades of the wealthy.
