Dutchess County Legislator and 41st Senate District Candidate Sue Serino and Chemung County Sheriff and Lt. Gov. Candidate Chris Moss speak with Anthony of Pizza Village in East Fishkill.


This week, County Legislator Sue Serino (R,C,I-Hyde Park), candidate for the 41st State Senate District, joined Chemung County Sheriff and Lt. Gov. Candidate Chris Moss to tour local businesses and talk with entrepreneurs and residents about how to make New York a more job-friendly state. During the tour, both candidates stressed the need to reduce regulations and support businesses across the state in an effort to boost the economy.

“Working in the real estate industry, I’ve seen firsthand how the lack of jobs has forced people of all ages to leave New York for states with a more business-friendly environment. As a small-business owner, I can tell you that New York’s red tape and regulations make it hard to open a business, keep your business open and grow your operations,” said Serino. “On top of that, the constantly increasing tax burden truly weighs down every small business in New York. It was great to hear from local entrepreneurs who are the on the frontline of the economy and hear how they think we can truly make grow New York’s economy.”


“New York State is the highest taxed, most regulated, least business-friendly state in America under Gov. Cuomo. Rob Astorino and I will launch an aggressive, pro-growth and pro-jobs economic agenda to revitalize New York’s stagnant economy,” said Moss. “By delivering bold reforms to New York’s antiquated tax code and regulatory system, cut spending in real terms and reduce the cost of doing business we can begin to grow our economy. Traveling across the state I’ve heard from countless business owners who have said if New York just let them run their businesses the way they know best, we could get back to being the economic leader in the nation.”
