My vision for the future and the possibilities of what our area can look like years from now starts with input from our citizens with each town and village board creating a comprehensive plan for its community's future, supported and approved by its citizens.
We must market and promote our region much better than we have done. We must bring down taxes in order to compete with other states and stop our young people from leaving the area.
My vision for the future has a lot of possibilities, but starts with common sense planning and building on our strengths, understanding that sometimes we must adapt and change in order to move forward. It also takes some courage from those in a leadership position to step up and think outside the box.
Our politicians often talk about bringing industry and new business to the area, but we must give businesses reasons to want to come here. Politicians don't create jobs, but can create the conditions and climate for entrepreneurs to come and invest in New York state.
One of the centerpieces of my campaign is to create the economic conditions in order to revitalize our region by working with both Republicans and Democrats to get the people's business done. I am not running to be a lifelong politician, but a representative for all the people. One of the things I will be pushing for are term limits so people like my opponent aren't in office for 17 years.
On Election Day, you have a clear choice between a seasoned politician and myself, a business owner who brings forth new ideas and hope for the future, and who'll represent you with a much louder voice in Albany.
You have a choice between keeping the status quo and the current economic stagnation or moving forward with a progressive, common-sense agenda that will benefit all.
If you believe like I do that our region can do so much better, then I ask for your vote on Election Day.
