State Senate candidate Dave Renzi today accepted the endorsement of New York’s small business owners who cited Renzi’s fresh ideas, energy and enthusiasm for rebuilding the Upstate economy and creating new jobs.
At a press conference held in front of Dynamic Sound and Security, in Oswego, Renzi was backed by the NFIB/ New York, which represents thousands of Upstate small business owners. Renzi was joined at the press conference by Michael Leszczynski, owner of Dynamic Sound and security and NFIB’s Mike Elmendorf.
The small business owners called Renzi the only choice in the race for State Senate who can be relied on to fight for tax relief and other measures to help small business succeed and create new jobs.
“I am very excited to receive the backing of small business owners,” said Renzi. “Small business ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ from small manufacturers to retail and independent companies ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ form the backbone of our local communities, and offer our best hope for revitalizing our Upstate economy.”
“Small business owners work hard to try to build a better life for themselves, their families and their communities,” Renzi said. “As Senator, I’ll work hard, too, to bring lower taxes, smarter policies and better treatment from Albany, and help rebuild our economy so that more of our citizens can find opportunities to succeed.”
Renzi has outlined a strong plan to help small businesses and create jobs. The plan includes tax credits targeted to companies that create jobs, directing more low-cost power to local companies, slashing Albany’s red tape, and gaining control over runaway state spending ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ all aimed at boosting small business’ bottom line.
In February, Darrel Aubertine ran on a platform of helping local business and protecting existing jobs. But he never even introduced the job-saving legislation he promised, never spoke on the Senate floor about protecting and growing jobs and has a long record of supporting higher taxes and spending in Albany’s bloated budgets.
