ROCHESTER, NY – Unshackle Upstate (www.unshackleupstate.com), through its political action committee UPAC, today announced its endorsement of Sue Serino’s re-election campaign in the 41st Senate district. 

“We’re proud to support Sue Serino’s campaign because she’s demonstrated a strong commitment to easing New Yorkers’ tax burden and promoting job growth in the Hudson Valley,” said Greg Biryla, executive director of Unshackle Upstate. “Families and businesses need a Senator who will protect the property tax cap, support real mandate relief and bring jobs back to our communities. We believe that Sue Serino will fight for those goals and we encourage voters to re-elect her on November 8.”

“Supporting our local businesses and economic development will play a critical role in making our area more affordable and ensuring that it’s one where people want to live, not one they want to leave,” said Senator Serino. “I am proud to be endorsed by an organization whose mission is to put the needs of the rest of the State ahead of NYC and I will work tirelessly to ensure that our families and our local business remain a priority in the eyes of the state.”
