From the Green Shadow Cabinet website, posted September 18, 2013:
Howie Hawkins is a long-time New York Green organizer who is running for Syracuse Common Council. He received nearly 60,000 votes as the New York Green Party’s candidate for governor in 2010, winning ballot access for the party, and earned 48% of the vote for Syracuse Common Council District 4 in 2011 – the same seat he is running for now.
Howie Hawkins’ campaign team is organizing a moneybloom – when supporters pledge to give on a single day to collectively reach a fundraising goal – to support Hawkins’ campaign on Friday, September 27th. From Howie Hawkins for 4th district councilor:
Howie is running for Syracuse City Council in order to speak up for the policies needed to fully fund our schools and public services. He is a lifelong activist, always working hard, agitating and organizing for practical solutions.
To support him, we are organizing a MoneyBloom, a one day, online fundraising event.
