Cuomo Flying Over Southern Tier Yet Again

March 5, 2018

Assemblyman Christopher S. Friend (R,C,I,Ref-Big Flats) is gravely concerned with Gov. Cuomo’s desire to court big businesses outside of the state for the right media headline or the biggest donation to his war chest. The governor’s courting of Delta Airlines is an affront to all the people in the 124th District who live here, work here and pay extraordinarily high taxes.

“Our district has over 3000 small businesses that receive no tax breaks from the state. This is due to Gov. Cuomo’s political ambitions,” Friend said. “He’s appealing to large out-of-state businesses, pushing a progressive agenda that doesn’t line up with our New York values and he’s doing all this at the expense of hard-working middle-class taxpayers and small businesses. When will the governor wake up and pay attention to the people he’s abandoned?”
