Open Letter to NY Governor Andrew Cuomo from Green Party's Howie Hawkins

Thread: 

An Open Letter to Andrew Cuomo from Howie Hawkins via email:

December 30, 2010

Dear Governor Cuomo,

Congratulations on your election.

During our recent Gubernatorial contest, we emphasized different approaches as to how best restore the state's fiscal health and to reduce the onerous impact of local property taxes. But as you prepare to start your administration, it is critical that the long term needs of our state take priority over the political rhetoric that dominates election campaigns.

The Horror of War on Stage

By David Swanson

"Prophecy" is the title of a new play by Karen Malpede, and I'm here to attempt the unamerican task of telling you to see it without telling you it's a comedy. In fact, I'm going to confess that I had to take a break from it and recover before I could write about it. I felt like I'd taken a blow with an enormous sledge hammer, even though I knew that a whole orchestra of smaller instruments had produced what I was feeling.

It was not a bad feeling, not an undesirable feeling. The play is a thing of beauty, and not all beauty fits into that Hollywood sensation of wouldn't-such-a-thing-be-sweet-but-I-bet-they're-divorced-in-a-year-and-I-shouldn't-have-had-that-last-gallon-of-coke. Read below the fold...

Tasini's problem and opportunity

UPDATE: Letter to the Rochester City Paper: Tasini's a better option for the Senate

Undecided Beats Gillibrand, Ford

A potential Democratic primary to replace Hillary Clinton still looks wide open, with 40% of voters saying in today’s Quinnipiac poll they have no idea who to back among Kirsten Gillibrand, Jonathan Tasini and Harold Ford.

Gillibrand is maintaining a big lead on Ford and the liberal Tasini, topping them 36% to 18% to 4% for Tasini.

Tasini's chances

New York Times

Last time around, pitted against Hillary Rodham Clinton, he was the 17 percent man, gathering that percentage of the vote in the 2006 Democratic primary.

Winning 17% of the vote against a Democratic icon like Hillary Clinton is actually a huge achievement. Remember, the Democratic Primary would have been held in September of 2006, back in the days when we thought more Democrats would solve our problems.

Today in Tasini

Remember Tasini for Senate

Tasini, president of the Labor Research Association and former president of the National Writers Union, stands clearly for progressive principles. His Web site - www.jonathantasini.com - outlines his long-standing commitment to equal rights for all, single-payer health care and against funding ongoing foreign occupations in Iraq and Afghanistan. His issues section is far more thoughtful, forthright and well-written than the cautious, hesitant statements on the Web site of our current junior Senator.

Jonathan Tasini is the only Democrat who can win New York in 2010

Currently polling at 5% it may sound strange to say that Tasini is the only Democratic candidate for US Senate with a prayer of winning, but it is so. If we are to motivate the Rochelle Sivian's of this world to give their time and energy to delivering the Democratic vote, then we must nominate candidates who refuse to be sucked into Versailles' conventional wisdom.

If we nominate Gillibrand we will just have a rerun of the Massachusetts senate race. I am increasingly of the view that Ford is in it to make Gillibrand look like a liberal. Read below the fold...
