City Scuffle: What’s next for Howie Hawkins?

— Having gotten the Greens back on the ballot by polling more than 50,000 votes in the last gubernatorial election, Hawkins has been recognized with the post of co-chair of the state party. In that position, he wants to spend time building up the party’s county structures. And, as he has articulated after each of the almost two decades of Election Days running for almost every office on the ballot, he looks forward to next November hoping to be campaigning for a Green Party candidate rather than as one. Meanwhile, he will be back to basics, organizing at the grass roots level for the points on the Green Party policy platform: public power, progressive tax reform, a municipal bank to spur small business development and a community hiring hall to insure jobs for local people of color on publicly funded construction projects.
