Assemblyman’s support of economy recognized

             Assemblyman Ray Walter (R,C,I-Amherst) recently received the endorsement of Unshackle Upstate, a bi-partisan coalition of over 80 business and trade organizations inNew York. Representing upwards of 70,000 companies and employing more than 1.5 million people, the group credited Walter for his work to undo years of fiscal mismanagement by state government that has led toNew York’s unfriendly business climate.

             “While New York is making progress, more needs to be done to stimulate private sector job growth”, said Brian Sampson, Executive Director of Unshackle Upstate.  “Assemblyman Walter has demonstrated his understanding of the critical issues by voting against legislative bills that will impede our growth while also sponsoring legislation that will ease the regulatory burden our businesses face.  What we need now more than ever are more leaders inAlbanylike Assemblyman Walter that will work with us to lower spending, lower taxes and get our economy moving once again.”

             “Out-of-control taxes have priced families out of our community and jobs out of our state,” said Walter. “During my first year in the Assembly, we have fought the dysfunction that long plagued state government and passed a fiscally-responsible budget built on smart spending rather than punitive taxes. My top priority is to improveNew York’s business climate so that our children have the jobs they need to build their lives in our community, and I will continue to work with Unshackle Upstate to revitalizeNew York’s economy.”
