Green Party New York: NY Gubernatorial Howie Hawkins Opposes Layoff of 2,000 State Workers

Howie HawkinsGreen Party Candidate for Governor Howie Hawkins Will Speak to Teacher Groups Supporting his Campaign Oct.24 in NYC

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for Governor, said today that he is opposed to the proposed layoffs of 2,000 state employees announced by Governor Paterson.

“Paterson, Cuomo and Paladino are intent on destroying state government. The fat that needs to be cut are the bloated payrolls and spending of the public authorities and contractors. We need to put a halt to the constitutional evasion that the authorities represent. We need to cut the bureaucrats at the top who rake in enormous salaries, not the rank and file workers that are critical to our quality of life,” said Hawkins, the only union member running for Governor.

Hawkins has laid out a plan for resolving the state budget deficit and to raise an additional $25 billion to invest in a WPA-style jobs program, school funding and fiscal relief by local governments by making Wall Street, bankers and the wealthy pay their fair share: stop the annual $16 billion of the Stock Transfer Tax to Wall Street speculators; restore the Rockefeller era progressive state income tax (raise $8 billion while providing 95% of New Yorkers with a tax cut); and impose a 50% tax on Bankers Bonuses they are paying themselves from the federal bailout ($10 billion).

Hawkins will speak Friday Oct. 24th, 4-7, to Teachers for a Just Contract at The Cherry Tree Bar, 65 Fourth Ave. in Brooklyn, one of a growing number of labor groups and activists supporting his candidacy.
