Governor Andrew Cuomo gave his 2014 budget presentation and discussed his plans for economic development at a special event hosted by the Westchester County Association this morning at the Westchester Marriott...
Governor Cuomo set forth an ambitious agenda in his fourth annual "State of the State" address today, including efforts to provide much-needed business and property tax relief and economic development incentives. We believe the Governor is headed in the right direction and hope that Westchester County can soon enjoy the fruits of his plan.
When the candidates for County Executive take the stage at tonight’s debate, they will talk about their plans for Westchester, but we want to hear about their vision. Westchester’s future is lost if all we get is more of the same. Good leaders set their sights high and work toward that end. Or to paraphrase the great philosopher Yogi Berra: if you don’t know where you’re going, you’ll never get there.
Here’s our wish list for creating a vision for Westchester. We hope that whoever wins the election will take it to heart and start working towards these goals.
