Jobs & The Economy


As a business owner. I know first hand the challenges our businesses face. We need to create good-paying jobs and remove barriers business owners face. Credit, access to markets, transportation cost, high fuel tax, insurance and workers comp cost just to name a few.

We need to create successful programs not failed programs like Empire Zone and Start Up NY. They did nothing but waste millions of taxpayers dollars. We need to explore programs that give new business owners tools and mentors to help build their business.

Small businesses are the backbone of our community
