WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY—NYS Senator Sue Serino, a small business owner herself, today announced that she has secured the endorsement of a leading voice for New York’s business community, the Business Council of New York State, Inc.
“New York State’s business community and taxpayers need leaders like Sue Serino who support commonsense governance,” said Heather C. Briccetti, Esq., president and CEO of The Business Council of New York State, Inc. “Throughout her time in office, Senator Serino has proven to be a strong voice for business and her constituents by defending them against an onslaught of job-killing taxes. That is why our PAC proudly endorses Senator Serino for reelection.”
Senator Sue Serino said,“As a small business owner, I know from experience just how hard it can be to succeed here in New York. In fact, it was my frustration with excessive red tape that threatened my ability to create jobs here in our community that led me to get involved in government in the first place.
New York’s job creators play a critical role in the state. The Business Council has made it their mission to bring the voices of New York’s employers to Albany to spur economic growth, create high quality jobs, and help grow strong communities. In this especially important election year, I am committed to ensuring that their voices are heard so that we can continue to move our community, and our state, forward.”
The Business Council represents approximately 2,400 member companies—from small businesses to large corporations—local chambers of commerce and professional and trade associations, who together employ over 1.2 million New Yorkers. At a time when New York’s businesses are being overburdened by increasingly excessive red tape, new payroll taxes are on the negotiating table and job-killing proposals like ending the ‘tipped wage tax credit’ are being seriously considered, their advocacy on behalf of New York’s businesses is especially critical.
