The states that encourage business and job growth will be the states that will succeed in the next decade. I am committed to making the changes necessary to change the direction of our State and to renew hope and prosperity for all New Yorkers. My immediate priorities for New York State in 2011 are:

Three Kings Day

January 3, 2011

As we prepare to celebrate the Feast of the Three Kings, I cannot ignore how important it is to be pro-child, pro-family and pro-life.

According to the Bible, King Herod saw the birth of Jesus as a threat.
