Assemblyman Pete Lopez Applauds Governor’s 2010 State Of The State
Reinforces the Governor’s “Call to Arms” to Rebuild New York; A Statement from Assemblyman Pete Lopez (R, C, I – Schoharie)
January 7, 2010
In his recent State of the State message, Governor Paterson gave Albany a reality check – a frank accounting of the need to change the way the state does business, or collapse under its own weight. Chief among his priorities and recommendations were:
- Rebuilding our economy, with an emphasis on small businesses and manufacturing;
- Controlling wasteful state spending and duplication, while encouraging reforms that would allow the state to meet the needs of its people in a sustainable manner; and
- Enacting reforms that would give clear guidance on the appropriate and acceptable conduct of our elected officials as they perform their official duties – putting people first, instead of climbing over others to improve their personal position.
