What They Say About Howie Hawkins

Howie Hawkins is the most unwavering progressive I think I've met in New York state.

Ralph Nader - Syracuse Post-Standard
October 8, 2004

The Post-Standard endorses Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate, for one of the seats.... His many ideas - including establishing a community hiring hall, creating a municipal bank and developing a green tech training center - could spark more progressive, out-of-the-box thinking in City Hall.

Post-Standard Editorial
September 29, 2005

Hawkins is far and away the best candidate in this three-way race. As is his custom, Hawkins has shaped his campaign around a promise to provide a voice for the voiceless. He is a tireless activist for empowering the traditionally disenfranchised. He promises to be a councilor who "represents the community instead of the power structure".

Howie Hawkins has always been willing to speak truth to power and to organize for justice for those who are oppressed. He has worked closely with communities of color in Syracuse and statewide on issues such as environmental justice, living wage jobs and criminal justice reform. Howie will speak up on issues such as universal health care, affordable housing and opposition to the war.

Howie Hawkins gets it when it comes to the central issue of our time: the need to rapidly enact a clean energy revolution with all that goes with it as far as job creation, economic development, peace, mass transportation, energy conservation and an end to corporate domination of politics. A continuing fossil-fuel dependent world economy ensures years and years of violent and destructive energy wars. We must end the war in Iraq and renounce plans for military bases and corporate control of oil as we enact the kind of Clean Energy Transition that Ross Gelbspan, Howie Hawkins and others have put forward.

Clinton has deftly avoided any substance in her campaign, riding a wave of celebrity back into her current office and possibly into the White House. But one candidate is talking about the issues that are important. One candidate wants to end the botched war in Iraq and ensure Americans have access to health care, and that candidate is Howie Hawkins.

Metroland (Albany) endorsement of Howie Hawkins for US Senate in 2006

Howie Hawkins is a man of principle. A union activist with the Teamsters, a working-class environmentalist, and a widely respected figure in Syracuse politics, Mr. Hawkins has the on-the-ground experience needed to grab Washington by the throat and turn it around, forcing millionaire career politicians to stop sending our families to die for oil, to create good-paying union jobs replacing our outdated energy infrastructure with power sources that don't poison our kids, and give our tax money back to local business and Main Street, rather than to huge corporations bloated with taxpayer subsidies. Howie understands the concrete policies we need to make this happen. He has the backbone to fight, and the dedication to win. He's in this for the long haul and deserves the support of every New Yorker.
