One reporter asked me this question: “The Governor comes to our region, sprinkles money on our communities then people are afraid to speak out against him, how can you overcome that?”
My response was simple: How can we accept that?
First, its not his money. It’s your money. Second, it’s corrupt.
Making New York affordable demands we hold the Governor and government accountable. New Yorkers from every region know this. Residents of the North Country know too well that we need to make State government smaller and more efficient and we need to cut taxes – especially property taxes – in order to grow the economy and make it easier for families, farmers, and small businesses to thrive.
And it’s hard not to like seeing this…
