YNN Central New York reports on the Syracuse Green Party:
SYRAC– USE, N.Y. — Voters in Syracuse will have at least three Green Party candidates to choose from at the polls this November.
The party held its Spring Convention on Monday, designating its candidates for local office. Howie Hawkins will run for 4th District Common Councilor, Albert Sales is running in the 3rd District and the party is backing Barbara Humphrey in her run for Syracuse School Board.
Party leaders say they’re trying to only focus on a few races right now.
“We’re a fairly small party and we’re still growing, so we’re concentrating on offices that we think that we have the resources to run good campaigns for and to win,” said Ursula Rozum.
Party officials say they still have the ability to nominate candidates and if anyone is interested, they should approach the party.
