Along with championing these policies, our Conference's Manufacturing and Small Business Task Forces have been traveling the state, listening to employers on what state government can do to stop hurting, and start helping, businesses throughout New York.
The insights and feedback our Task Forces receive shapes our bi-partisan legislative agenda focused on fixing New York's economy and creating jobs where they are most needed: the private sector.
Given all the bad news about the state's economy and political gridlock in Albany, it's easy to get discouraged, or consider giving up. The reality is that now, more than ever, New York needs Chamber members to get involved and make their voices heard so the real change our state needs can finally happen.
If you would like to learn more about our Conference's legislative agenda that has as its priorities strengthening the economy, lowering taxes and unleashing the tremendous promise, potential and possibility of Central New York and our entire state, call my office at 781-2030, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit my Web site at friendsofbriankolb.com.
With the Chamber's partnership, we can rebuild New York's struggling economy and make the Empire State more business friendly.
