Howie Hawkins is an activist who ran as the Green Party candidate for Governor in New York State in 2010 and received just shy of 60,000 votes (1/3% of the total). Hawkins moved to Syracuse in the 1990s "to develop cooperatives for CommonWorks, a federation of cooperatives working for an economy that is cooperatively owned, democratically controlled, and ecologically sustainable." Where is CommonWorks now? What cooperatives were in the federation? Syracusans have any insight?
