Kevin Bott and Howie Hawkins for Syracuse
SYRACUSE, N.Y. — Green Party candidates running for Syracuse mayor and city council are calling for a return to the good old days when New York state shared 8 percent of its revenues with local governments, a change they say would solve the fiscal problems facing the city.
Mayoral candidate Kevin Bott and 4th District Common Council candidate Howie Hawkins will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. today at city hall to promote their ideas for raising money to avert a fiscal crisis for Syracuse. Along with increased state aid, they propose a progressive city income tax on people who work in Syracuse.
