Howie Hawkins, from The New Republic

From The New Republic online:

"When the debate veered into a discussion about capping the state's sky-high property taxes, Green Party candidate Howie Hawkins wasn't afraid to point out that Proposition 13 has straitjacketed California's budget."


"Hawkins pointed out that congestion pricing on traffic into New York City could create a dedicated funding stream for mass transit (a far sounder idea than "cutting waste and fraud") and that single-payer health care was one option for bringing the state's rising medical costs under control."
