Creating Jobs at Watkins Glen International
Tourism is a major driver of our local economy and creates countless jobs.
That is especially true in and around Watkins Glen, NY where estimated at $200 million plus annually is brought into the local economy through Watkins Glen International.
That is exactly why I ensured tax provisions were included in a bill that allowed NASCAR to modernize and repave Watkins Glen International. The track had not been upgraded since 1998.
This was a $12 million dollar project that would not have been possible without this assistance.
I am always happy to work to ensure good, high paying jobs are available to the hardworking people in the Southern Tier, Finger Lakes and Western New York
