It was a fall day in Syracuse, New York, and in what struck many as a political miracle, it seemed that by 4 p.m. the mayor would be term-limited and the November 6 election would be a landslide victory for Hawkins, who had won more than 50 percent of the vote in the Democratic Party primary. That evening, the district attorney filed a complaint against Hawkins for a violation of election law.

Howie Hawkins' campaign website says, "The inhumanity of US immigration policy came to broad public attention in 2018 with the news coverage of forced separations of young children from their families on the southern US border. These crimes against humanity only underscored the long-standing brutality of US immigration policy, which has treated people from Mexico and Central America in particular as cheap labor to be imported or deported based on US labor demand, like apartheid South Africa once used Bantustans."

Howie Hawkins' campaign website says, "We will never reverse extreme and growing economic inequality as long as capitalists exploit workers for profit and extract more unearned income from the economy as rent and interest. Capitalists pay workers a fixed wage and take the rest of the value workers’ labor creates as profit. Capitalists take more unearned income as rent and interest in excess of the costs of production due to their exclusive ownership of access to resources, such as land sites, natural resources, intellectual property, and monopolies."

Vote

By voting Green Party on this Election Day you will make sure that we can field independent candidates who take no corporate money, who are teachers, teamsters, college students. Pushing the Democrats who get elected to take the progressive positions they talk about happens when Green Party vote totals are good.

As the Green Party's candidate for Governor of New York in 2010 and 2014, he campaigned for a ban on fracking, 100% clean energy by 2030, single-payer healthcare, an end to Governor Cuomo's test-punish-privatize-and-segregate education agenda, and for progressive taxes and revenue sharing as the alternative to Cuomo's austerity budgets for schools, cities, and public services. In 2014, he received 5 percent of the vote, the most for an independent progressive party candidate for Governor in New York history except the 5.7% in 1918 and 5.6% in 1920 received by the Socialist Party candidates.
