(Page 5 of 5)

Jack Martins and Daniel Ross are the two candidates running for the New York Senate's 7th District.

Martins: We must understand why employers are relocating to other states — high taxes, high energy costs, and the cost of government regulations and red tape.  To reverse this trend and encourage business start ups, we must address these issues by getting Albany’s bureaucracy out of the way. As a member of the Regional Economic Development Council, I have seen the benefits of a regional approach firsthand. Programs like this will keep existing companies in state, create new jobs and bring companies back.

I will also be working to ensure that the commitment to regional development continues and will also work with my colleagues to pass business tax relief to help businesses grow and create new jobs. 

Ross: Bring down the cost of doing business through a reduction in personal income tax for small business owners while allowing a competitive market for energy, especially electricity.
