Howie Hawkins – Green for Governor

Media Release

Hawkins Declares Mission Accomplished As He Wins Ballot Status for Greens for Third Time in a Row

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Governor, declared “mission accomplished” tonight as his vote total surpassed the 50,000 votes needed to maintain a ballot line for the Green Party in New York.

Hawkins successfully regained ballot status for the Greens in 2010 after they lost it in the 2002 election. In 2014, Hawkins won almost 5% of the vote, the highest vote total for an independent left party candidate for governor in New York history and the highest percentage since 1920. Today’s accomplishment is the first time that one candidate has won a ballot line for a third party for three consecutive gubernatorial elections in New York history.

“We have secured a Green Party ballot line in New York state for three consecutive elections by running our own candidates instead of running a major party candidate on our line. That’s a significant achievement in a system designed to create so-called third parties that merely function as extra ballot lines for the Democratic and Republican parties,” said Hawkins.

“But it’s too bad that corporate media gave Cuomo a free ride,” Hawkins continued. “They excluded the Greens from the news narrative of the primary and general elections. The Green alternatives to Cuomo’s terrible education, fiscal, transit, housing, and energy policies were not reported. Cuomo’s record was not subject to public debates because the corporate media succumbed to Cuomo’s dictates on debates. New York’s voters are the losers. They weren’t informed of all their options.”

Hawkins said that the Greens will now focus on organizing movements to push state government to adopt the popular demands the Greens campaigned for, including the New York Health Act for single-payer health care, fully-funding public schools, closing pro-developer loopholes in the expiring rent laws, tuition-free public college, and criminal justice and election reforms.

“The Greens will focus on passing the New York Off Fossil Fuels Act with the same intensity we put into winning the fracking ban in 2014,” Hawkins said. The NY OFF Act would block all new fracked-gas pipelines and power plants and build out a 100% clean energy system by 2030.

“The IPCC says we have 12 years left for a worldwide emergency mobilization to avoid climate collapse. We have already wasted 4 years since the Paris accord. The prognosis is bleak under either Democrats or Republicans,” said Green comptroller candidate Mark Dunlea.

“Our electoral efforts will now shift to local town, city and county races, where we can win more offices because it is harder for the pay-to-play money going to the Democrats and Republicans to beat local candidates who can go door-to-door to talk to voters,” Hawkins said.

Count Down To Election Day

By   November 3, 2018

Count Down to Election Day

With just a few days to go this is the time we need everyone to volunteer whenever and where ever they can.

Join Carmen Hulbert to give out literature at Trader Joe’s on Court Street Saturday and Sunday from 1p – 5p.  Even if you could just spare an hour!
Contact Carmen at 347-277-3892

And you can always get some campaign literature and distribute in your neighborhood or subway stations.  Contact Dani for literature and signs.  dani@gpbk.org or 347-218-3107

Do you have an hour or two to spare on Election Day – Tuesday Nov 6?  Polls show that many people do not decide who they will vote for until they are on their way to the polling site.  You could make the difference for them to vote Hawkins/Lee Green Party.

Stock up on campaign literature and hit your local poll site.  Busy times during the morning and evening rush are best but make it work with your schedule.  Want to team up or stake out one of the high Green Party vote turn out polling sites? Contact Gloria at gloria@gpbk.org or 917-886-4538 for an assignment.

Join other Greens and supporters on Election night after the polls close to watch the results.

GOTV HAS BEGUN! – HERE IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

By   October 24, 2018
Dear Greens and Supporters,
Here is a special message from Hawkins/Lee Campaign Manager, Michael O’Neil:
Our statewide Get Out The Vote plan has begun!
What is the GOTV Plan?
We need long-time activists to

Sign the vote pledge for Hawkins/Lee

Recruit 10-20 friends/family/allies/long-lost Green friends not currently involved the party and get them to…Sign the vote pledge for Hawkins/Lee Recruit 5-20 more people to Sign the vote pledge for Hawkins/Lee

Turn in all of your signup sheets from canvassing! To forms@howiehawkins.org

Make sure you have enough Literature for distribution.

Make personal phone calls. Reach out one-on-one. Have conversations. Explain that Howie and Jia are the only progressives on the ballot for Governor. Explain that the only way to resist the corporate rule of Cuomo with their vote is to vote for Howie and Jia. Explain that the only way to overcome rightwing monsters like Trump is to build a strong Left party opposed to corporate influence, which the Democratic Party leadership (like Cuomo) will never do.Explain why this is important to you — personally. Ask them what issues they care most about, explain how Howie and Jia will fight for them. Call in favors! Do whatever you have to do. Tell them about the rest of our statewide slate! Tell them about the great local candidates we run, or will run!

By When Does It Need To Happen?
We need activists to have recruited your 10-20 people as soon as possible. Then we need you to follow up with your recruits and encourage them to keep reaching out to their people!
Why?
If each of us makes a personal appeal to 10-20 people who then each go out and persuade 10-20 other people that could mean an extra few thousand votes on Election Day. And we will need every one of those votes to ensure we keep our ballot line.
Is This Our Only Get Out The Vote Tactic?
No. On Tuesday we will begin text banking through our entire phone list in a week. 
Any questions or need help? Please email, text or call: michael@counterpower.org / 917-825-3562
Please note: Text banking is similar to phone banking except it is much easier and MORE FUN! It is simple to learn and can be done from your home computer on your own schedule. Once you sign up at the above link, you will be sent a tutorial to watch and then you can start. It is one of the quickest and best ways to reach maximum voters. Please sign up!

The Comptroller has the power to make the decision to divest by himself.

Congratulations to Anthony Beckford for securing the Green Party of Brooklyn endorsement for Assembly District 42!

By   June 16, 2018

Anthony Beckford‘s endorsement was approved by the GPBK Membership at our recent membership meeting, per GPBK’s new endorsement process. Congrats Anthony on all your work so far, and we’re looking forward to helping you get out your message! Anthony will appear on the ballot in November as the Green Party candidate.

More from Anthony:
As a long time advocate and activist, I have always had great pleasure in fighting for the people. It is my duty and my honor. I have heard the cries and have seen the tears. My decision to run for NYS Assembly is for me to answer those cries and to help dry those tears. As a Disabled Marine Corps Veteran and a single father, I have overcome a lot and have inspired many to do so as well. As the son of Jamaican immigrants, I have unconditional love for my community, which is predominantly Caribbean. My community is Assembly District 42 in Brooklyn, which is made up of Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood and Ditmas Park. I have been on the frontlines fighting against police brutality, pipelines, fracking, corrupt landlords and developers, corrupt politicians, bigotry, racism and so much more. I am honored to have received the endorsement from the Green Party of Brooklyn and welcome any and all help and donations for my campaign to become a greater movement of the people. It is time for the people to elect a candidate that will not provide lip service, but will actually provide solutions.

Upcoming events:
