Howie Hawkins

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?
