Jobs and the Economy
Creating jobs and growing the Hudson Valley economy are my top priorities. Congress must create a climate that fosters job growth. I believe in commonsense reforms, like streamlining the current tax code for both individuals and businesses. This is essential to allow residents and corporations to gain greater economic security.
Small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and we must do all we can to help them succeed. I started my own business, I know what it takes to start a company from scratch and create good-paying jobs in New York. I will work to increase small businesses' access to capital and reduce burdensome government regulations.
For more information concerning my work and views on the issues of Jobs and the Economy, please contact me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
