Senator Griffo's Weekly Column #1: The Right Route For Government

Happy New Year!

My wife and I did some traveling for the holidays. Our destination was the same as the year before – and many years before that. One thing had changed, however. We didn’t agree on how to get there.

Governing is a lot like a road trip. All participants share a common destination, but the disagreements are always about what exact route to take.

State legislators and the governor, regardless of political affiliation, all want to help New York attract good-paying jobs and grow our economy. We also want to invest in our children and keep spending in check while maintaining services.

This week, Governor Cuomo will unveil his roadmap in a State of the State address. As always, I’m looking forward to hearing his plan.

Statement from Senator Joseph A. Griffo regarding Economic Development Council funding

“I’m tremendously pleased by today’s announcement that New York is committing $163.7 million to important economic projects in the regions I represent. We truly have the best collaborators and leaders in economic development right here.

The Council remains impressed with the North Country, whose projects earned ‘top performer’ status for the third time in a row. These ‘firecracker’ projects, as the regional leaders call them, will enhance Northern New York’s status as a premier tourism destination and make the area more attractive to forward-thinking businesses, especially those in the biotechnology field.
