As a businessman, I will fight for fiscal sanity in Albany. Elected officials need to realize that they have a fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of our state. I will be speak out against the tax and spend mentality that has ruled Albany for far too long. New Yorkers are amongst the most heavily taxed people in this nation. Our high taxes have driven businesses, investments and jobs from our city and state. If we are to remain the Empire State, this lunacy must stop before it's too late.
