Johns: This Yearís Session Put Families First And Albanyís Old Politics Last

Statement from Assemblyman Mark Johns (R,C-Webster)
June 21, 2012
ďAs a newcomer to Albany, I couldnít help but set my sights on ending Albanyís politics as usual, which meant ending dysfunction and extreme partisanship. I worked closely on bridging a gap between ideologies to accomplish important things like reducing spending to lower income taxes on working families, and investing in jobs and the economy, which is setting the Rochester area apart from the rest of upstate in terms of its rapid economic recovery. At every point, Iíve pushed for reforms so that we could focus on whatís important instead of fighting over the things that donít matter.Ē
