Today, April 13: Howie Hawkins' First Rochester Visit for 2018 Green Party Gubernatorial Campaign

For immediate release: April 13, 2018

Howie Hawkins, who is seeking the Green Party nomination for Governor of New York, will speak in Rochester about his campaign today at 11am. The address will take place in front of the RTS Bus Terminal, 71 North Clinton Avenue, located downtown.

Hawkins will speak on the local Sibley Building's history as an example of wasteful, corrupt "corporate welfare" that must end (the building is located next to the bus terminal). Hawkins' campaign calls instead for aggressive investment in "Green New Deal" public works such as improving mass transit. Hawkins will also speak on the need to fully fund and desegregate public schools, while ending high-stakes testing, to provide a quality education for all students in New York.
 
Hawkins was the Green Party candidate for Governor in 2010 and 2014. In 2014, he finished third with 184,419 votes, which moved the Green Party up to the 4th line among ballot qualified parties.
 
Hawkins is a retired Teamster who lives in Syracuse NY.
 
The Green Party will hold its nominating convention for statewide candidates in Albany on Saturday May 19. The Green Party is committed to ecology, grassroots democracy, nonviolence, and social and economic justice.
