Hawkins to Present Plan for Re-Opening Coyne Laundry

Plans Many New Worker Cooperatives in Syracuse

Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for mayor of Syracuse, will hold a news conference on Tuesday, October 31 at 11:00 am in front of the recently closed Coyne Textile Services building at Coyne Corners at the intersection of Tallman Street and Cortland Avenue.

He will be joined by Frank Cetera, a co-op developer by profession who is the Green candidate for councilor-at-large.

“It is time for our city government to stop giving tax breaks exclusively to big private developers and start investing in community-owned enterprises. The best strategy to create living-wage jobs, build business asset wealth for working people, and expand the property tax base is to develop worker cooperatives and other forms of community-owned enterprises,” Hawkins said.
