Standing Up to Cuomo's New New York

Dear Neighbor,

The news coming out of Albany and the Governor’s office does not put New Yorkers’ interests first.

We are concerned over Governor Cuomo’s decision to give Amazon $1.7 billion in subsidies, in exchange for Amazon to locate their second headquarters in New York City.

This deal represents a slap in the face to the hardworking New Yorkers struggling to survive in Governor Cuomo’s oppressive business environment of high taxes and unreasonable regulations.

And even Governor Cuomo understands this, saying: “It’s not a level playing field to begin with. All things being equal, if we do nothing, they’re going to Texas.”

Governor Cuomo should focus on providing relief for existing businesses in New York so all can prosper – not just those who can navigate New York’s ridiculous bureaucracy.

We sent a letter to Governor Cuomo addressing our concerns and asking him to work with us to give the small business owners of New York a chance to prosper while creating new jobs, attract new businesses and keep existing businesses in our state.

But wait, there is more.

The state Legislature will consider a controversial bill next year that would allow illegal immigrants to apply for a driver’s license — and Cuomo says he will sign it if it passes.

We feel this is not fair for the men and women who immigrated here legally, for the hardworking taxpayers and the residents who worry about the safety of our neighborhoods.

This dangerous proposal will create a hardship for our law enforcement community to accurately identify criminal illegal aliens.

New York deserves to prosper but under Cuomo’s new New York, we will be left behind.

As always, please reach out to our office if you need assistance. Our door is always open.

Until next time,

Tom
