Answer: Yes."He along with Cynthia Nixon could take enough votes away from Cuomo and help taxpayers elect a Republican." -Larry P., Great Neck


Answer: Yes."Howie is night and day different from either the Dems or the R's. He's an honest progressive who puts voters over donors." -Sandy S., Albany


Answer: Yes."New York needs a Governor that has bold ideas and integrity and is not in the pocket of rich donors." -Gloria M., Brooklyn


Answer: No."The green party is a communist party in my opinion. The southern tier needs gas drilling and economic opportunity, not communism" -Mike L., Lockwood

Answer: Yes."Howie Hawkins is the most visionary, honest, and principled candidate ever to run for Governor. The Green Party is the only political party that has a platform to save this planet, bring real social justice, and get money out of politics.

Answer: Yes."I would like to see our country move away from our divisive two-party system; to do this we need to start for voting for candidates that are not of our dominant two parties." -Francis M., Troy
