Johns: This Year’s Session Put Families First And Albany’s Old Politics Last

Statement from Assemblyman Mark Johns (R,C-Webster)
June 21, 2012

“As a newcomer to Albany, I couldn’t help but set my sights on ending Albany’s 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, I’ve pushed for reforms so that we could focus on what’s important instead of fighting over the things that don’t matter.”
