The Green Party of New York State has formally announced its nomination of Howie Hawkins in the gubernatorial race.

Hawkins has run several times on the Green Party ticket. In 2005, he tried to become the mayor of Syracuse. In 2006, he campaigned to become a U.S. senator.

Also nominated Saturday were Gloria Mattera for lieutenant governor, as well as Colia Clark and Cecile Lawrence for U.S. Senate.

Hawkins said in a statement that ``the people of New York need someone in Albany who will stand up for Main Street and Martin Luther King Blvd.'' The candidate also promised to "tax Wall Street in order to invest in Main Street.''
