Green Party’s Hawkins speaks in Auburn

Three days removed from the gubernatorial debate at Hofstra University, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins brought his campaign for governor to Auburn Thursday.

Hawkins spoke and took questions at the Universalist Unitarian Society Building. The venue’s significance to the Green Party movement was noted at the outset by Ron Van Nostrand, who said the building was instrumental in holding the first New York Green Party convention.

Believing the Green Party can become the third major party, Hawkins took swipes at both major party candidates for governor, especially Democrat Andrew Cuomo, who Hawkins believes will win the race, but has been hiding out and ignoring discussion about the issues.

“If I had the money, I would put his face on milk cartons,” Hawkins said.
