Butler: Governor Starting On A Good Foot

Statement from Assemblyman Marc Butler (R,C,I-Newport) on Governor Cuomo’s State of the State Address
January 5, 2011
“For years I have advocated for fundamental changes to how our government operates in New York and, based on his remarks in the state of the state address, it appears that governor Cuomo shares many of the same priorities. I am encouraged that working together, we can revive our economy to encourage private-sector job growth, change the state’s out-of-control spending habits to become financially stable, address the ever-increasing tax burden on our families to give them a chance for prosperity, and put an end to the dysfunctional past so we can better serve New Yorkers. I look forward to addressing these urgent needs in our state and will make sure we never lose sight of what is important.”
