Working Families meeting offers glimpse of governor race – but Cuomo not seeking endorsement

Working Families meeting offers glimpse of governor race – but Cuomo not seeking endorsement

Buffalo News, April 13, 2018

Another variable that could affect Cuomo centers around Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate who Friday announced his candidacy during a rally in Niagara Square.

He was slated to advocate fully funding and desegregating public schools, ending high-stakes testing, and providing a quality education for all students, according to his campaign. Hawkins was also slated to speak on ending “corporate welfare” and promoting a “Green New Deal” of public works to include improving mass transit and achieving 100 percent clean and renewable energy in 15 years.

Hawkins ran for governor on the Green line in 2010 and 2014. In 2014, he finished third with 184,419 votes.
