Green Party nominates Hawkins for Governor

Saturday New York’s Green Party nominated Howie Hawkins for Governor. Gloria Mattera, long-time peace activist from Brooklyn, was nominated for Lt. Governor. Colia Clark, a long time social justice activist from Harlem, won the nomination to run for the U.S. Senate for the seat presently held by Democrat Chuck Schumer. Cecile Lawrence, a resident of Apalachin in Tioga County who is a leader in the movement against hydrofracking for natural gas due to concerns over water and other environmental issues, will run for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand. Julia Willibrand, a long-time environmental leader from Manhattan, was nominated for State Comptroller. The Green Party needs 50,000 votes for Governor to regain its status as an official ballot access qualified party.
