Speed up the process

December 29, 2013

If New York state wants to be open for business, it has to create an environment where business and industry projects can get started sooner rather than later....

NYS has continued to raise the taxes and fees on businesses all across the state. The new no tax 10 deal is a trap, it entices business to come but in the end when the deal is over... wham! Tax time!! Look over our area... have you noticed long established businesses going out? Closing their doors because they can no longer afford to do business. When is the last time a SMALL business got a break? You know the ones that break their backs to provide for their families? The ones that keep the economic wheels turning! It is all a game to the big government guys, just like the mafia, pay or go out of business.

Now, more than ever before, it imperative for "planning" to take a regional approach. If the Walmart distribution facility plan had undergone a thorough SEQR study that considered the negative impact on Fonda the facility might have been sited elsewhere. Similarly, any SEQR study dealing with Tryon should address the negative impact from traffic in Montgomery County, whether on a bypass or on an existing road. But, the big question remains, will the $ millions spent lobbying NYS be enough to trump a negative SEQR report? Of course it will. And, when will the "no truck traffic" signs posted by local officials in Montgomery County fall victim to the "done deal" on the bypass?

We don't need Parks, we don't need Shopping Malls, we need lower taxes and fewer stifling regulations brought on by unelected bureaucrats heading unaccountable Agencies. We need to cease giving over 50% of our property taxes to stuff the pockets of systemic looters/moochers and put it back into our communities where it belongs. We DO NOT need politicians and the media to tell us where our focus should be one moment to the next. Do the math, in NYS we are losing population, wealth AND Congressional Representation...that can mean nothing but higher taxes, period. Make no mistake, articles like this try to keep our eyes off the ball, don't be fooled.

I reside in the winter in another state, and am angered about the TV ads exploiting "New York State is open for business" and touting the "10 tax free zones". Tax free for businesses means more for property owners. Property owners are moving out if they can sell their homes and that population is moving to lower taxed states. Our "retirement" home in New York State is up for sale because of the taxes. However, it's futile because people just don't want to buy property because of the taxes. I feel I'm being held hostage.

Why is it that when any liberal states a goal they immediately throw up a barrage of obstacles designed to keep your eyes off the goal?
